Today, HHS Secretary Alex Azar issued the following statement regarding the Trump Administration’s announcement that the average basic premium for Medicare Part D prescription drug plans is projected to drop in 2020, the third straight year to see a decrease:
“President Trump has listened to what American patients and seniors want, and he has promised to protect what works and fix what’s broken in American healthcare. Medicare Part D plans continue to be extremely popular, and the President is delivering improvements to Part D, offering plans more ways to provide low-cost options and delivering patients more transparency on drug prices. With premiums in Part D now projected to decline for 2020, President Trump is delivering on his promise to protect seniors and put patients in control.”
