Demand Your Senators Include Medicare Negotiations and Expansion in Recovery

President Biden put out his vision for recovery—the American Jobs and Families Plan—and it’s a good first step, but it fails to address the ongoing healthcare crises working families are facing, like unaffordable healthcare coverage and sky-high drug prices.

Indivisible is supporting these critical healthcare priorities in recovery:

  1. Build from Chairman Wyden’s principles for drug pricing reform by ensuring these critical provisions are included in the final bill package:
    1. Allow Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices, limit high launch prices, and impose restrictions on increasing prices.
    2. Ensure low cost prescription drugs are available to everyone, including the uninsured.
    3. Cap the price of prescription drugs in the U.S. to the average price in peer countries.
    4. Include strong inflation protections & negotiation enforcement, like tax penalties.
  2. Expand Medicare benefits to include coverage of essential services such as hearing, dental, and vision.
  3. Lower the Medicare age of eligibility age and cap out-of-pocket costs for beneficiaries.

    Healthcare is a crucial part of recovery, but it isn’t the only priority we are fighting to win.

    Much like we saw in the fight for the American Rescue Plan, the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) has determined their priorities to win a robust recovery. In addition to healthcare, Indivisible is supporting 6 other critical priorities:

    1. Pathway to Citizenship
    2. Dramatically Lower Drug Prices & Use Savings to Pay for Public Health Expansion
    3. Investments in Climate
    4. Investments in the Care Economy
    5. Investments in Housing
    6. Increase the overall size of Recovery

Tell Your Senators to Include Medicare Negotiations and Expansion in Recovery

Hello, I’m a constituent from [state] and I believe any recovery package must include lowering prescription drug prices and expanding the Medicare program. Will [Senator]:

  • Fight to include in recovery allowing Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices, limit high launch prices, and impose restrictions on increasing prices? As well as:
    • Ensuring low cost prescription drugs are available to everyone, including the uninsured.
    • Capping the price of prescription drugs in the U.S. to the average price in peer countries.
    • Including strong inflation protections & negotiation enforcement, like tax penalties?

Will [Senator]:

  • Fight for the savings from Medicare negotiations to be reinvested back into the program to:
    • Expand Medicare benefits to include coverage of hearing, dental, and vision services,
    • Lower the eligibility age of Medicare to 50, and
    • Cap out-of-pocket costs for Medicare beneficiaries?

Additionally, increasing the overall size of recovery by including a pathway to citizenship and making historic investments in affordable housing, green jobs, the care economy, and combating climate change are critical priorities for recovery.

Will [Senator] support these policy priorities?
