Is Medicare drug coverage in jeopardy?

The Hill, February 21, 2014

Republican committee leaders are pushing the Obama administration to call off proposed changes to the Medicare prescription drug program, arguing the overhaul would jeopardize seniors' plans and raise premiums. The charges pertain to recent regulations proposed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The rules would allow the agency to participate in negotiations between insurance companies and pharmacies in Medicare Part D for the first time out of concerns over cost and access. Supporters of the change argue the CMS needs new authority to ensure the market for prescription drugs in Part D works for patients.
