By T.P., PhD, a Medicare Beneficiary from Ohio

I would like to express my view that it would be cheaper and more efficient for all to have drug coverage as part of Medicare itself and not as a separate plan handled by private insurance companies. In addition, if the government can negotiate drug prices for veterans through the Veterans Administration, they should be able to negotiate prices for seniors and others covered by Medicare. Currently the drug companies are among the most profitable corporations in the world at the price of taking advantage of sick people who must choose between living expenses (food, housing, utilities, etc) and drugs.
