***PRESS RELEASE*** STATEMENT FROM ALLIANCE FOR PATIENT ACCESS ON POTENTIAL PART D GAP COVERAGE CHANGES

WASHINGTON – Today, the Alliance for Patient Access (AfPA) made the following statement regarding the congressional budget deal currently being negotiated and potential changes to Medicare Part D that could have long-term negative impacts on seniors’ access.

STATEMENT FROM BRIAN KENNEDY, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, ALLIANCE FOR PATIENT ACCESS:

“As patient advocates, we are concerned with the impact and unintended consequences of including Part D gap coverage changes in a budget package of this size. Changes to Part D should be carefully reviewed for how they might impact the access and care for seniors who rely on Part D and not enacted without full input from all affected parties. AfPA urges Congress to remove any proposals altering the Part D program from this package and, if appropriate, undertake an examination of ways to improve seniors’ access and reduce their burden under Part D.”
