Congress inches closer to a massive, 725-page spending bill referred to as “Reconciliation.” It includes several drug pricing provisions that claim to lower Rx costs for seniors. But a closer look reveals that those savings aren’t as widespread as patients might expect.
Terry and Dr. Bob recruit the help of Medicare policy expert Doug Badger to uncover the top facts about the bill that patients need to know.
Plus, hear from Michael Riotto, a multiple myeloma warrior who recaps his experience at the We the Patients Fly-In, including health policies that directly impact his ability to access care.
