In a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), key Republican leaders urged HHS to rescind a proposed rule that could threaten access to prescription drugs for seniors and people with disabilities. In the letter—spearheaded by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and signed by 15 Senate Republicans—the Senators urge CMS to retract the ruling immediately, indicating that “the most important pillars of the Part D program have been its robust competition among plans, protection from government interference in contract negotiations, and protection of access to life-saving drugs.” The Senators warn that the proposed rule could “undermine each of these pillars,” resulting in as many as 14 million seniors losing their current drug coverage.
