New Tool for Exploring Prescription Drug Costs

href=”https://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2015/12/21/rising-prescription-drug-costs-new-tool-lets-you-explore-whats-happening-medicare”>released a new tool to explore the costs of Medicare prescription drugs. “The tool includes information on a total of 80 drugs: 40 that are covered under the Medicare Prescription Drug Program (Part D) and 40 that are administered by physicians and other professionals. The tool allows you to sort these drugs in different ways, so you can rank them by total spending, spending per person, or by cost increases. It also shows how much the seniors and people with disabilities on Medicare pay for these drugs. The tool launched today provides a look at information on drug spending in the program and by beneficiaries going back five years and also includes helpful charts showing these trends over time.”
