Medicare Part D Reform: Pathways for Reducing Out-of-Pocket Costs in Medicare
A 2019 NPF survey of people with psoriatic disease found that over 4 in 10 Medicare beneficiaries experience financial strain due to the cost of their biologic treatment. NPF is advocating to reduce out-of-pocket costs in Medicare. Watch this webinar to learn about why people with psoriatic disease experience high out-of-pocket costs when they switch from commercial insurance to Medicare Part D, what Congress can do to improve the Part D program, and how you can get involved.
This webinar is part of a series of information about Medicare Part D. To learn more about the challenges our patient community commonly faces with Medicare Part D, listen to Episode 95 of Psound Bytes. For a first-hand account of switching to Part D, check out Wayne’s Journey: When Affordability Isn’t a Possibility.
