The Veterans Administration, Medicaid, Health Maintenance Organizations, and hospitals use competitive bidding for prescription drugs. Competitive bidding for large volume purchases is a normal practice in virtually every part of the private sector, among not-for-profit organizations, and many government agencies. Medicare should not be any different.

Please send the NRLN’s sample letter at http://capwiz.com/abtr/issues/alert/?alertid=51921501 to your Representative, Senators and President Obama to urge them to support Senate Bill S. 44, the Medicare Prescription Drug Price Negotiation Act of 2011. This bill, supported by the National Retiree Legislative Network (NRLN), would direct the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to negotiate prices for all parts of Medicare Part D with pharmaceutical manufacturers.
