The undersigned organizations represent millions of seniors, individuals with disabilities, and beneficiaries dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid who depend on Medicare Part D to cover critical therapies within the protected categories and classes of drugs. We strongly oppose sections of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Proposed Rule: Modernizing Part D and Medicare Advantage to Lower Drug Prices and Reduce, which would establish broad exceptions to Part D’s protected classes policy.
