Medicare Part D

Medicare Part D, an important source of prescription drug coverage for more than 42 million Medicare beneficiaries, is the rare government program that is costing less than projected and exceeding expectations. Thanks to Part D, beneficiaries have more choices and increased access to the medicines they need.

The Prescription Drug User Fee Act

The Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) helps the FDA ensure that patients have timely access to breakthrough medicines and that the U.S. continues to be the global leader in delivering these new, lifesaving cures and treatments. During the fifth reauthorization of PDUFA in 2012, we urged legislators to pass a clean and timely PDUFA in order to benefit patients and American innovation.
