Thanks to President Biden and Congress’ passage of the Inflation Reduction Act, which established the Medicare Prescription Drug Inflation Rebate Program, another benefit for Medicare enrollees has been implemented.
  • The law reined in pharmaceutical industry price gouging by prohibiting drug company price increases greater than the rate of inflation.
  • Some Medicare enrollees will pay less for 64 drugs available through Medicare Part B.
  • The drugs will have a lowered Part B coinsurance rate from July 1, 2024 – September 30, 2024.
  • Some of these drugs treat conditions such as osteoporosis, cancer, and infections.
  • Some Medicare enrollees who use these drugs during this time period may save between $1 and $4,593 per day.   read more.
