Obamacare Reduces Prescription Drug Costs

The Hill: “The Obama administration says cost-saving measures in ObamaCare have reduced the burden of prescription drug coverage and saved seniors and people with disabilities $11.5 billion since 2010.”

“According to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), 8.2 million seniors and people with disabilities saved an average of $1,407 since 2010 through ObamaCare rebates and discounts to close the prescription drug ‘donut hole.’”

“The announcement comes … after the administration touted that Affordable Care Act measures to reduce Medicare costs had added another four years to the entitlement program’s solvency.”
