The Build Back Better Act Will Lower Insulin Costs for Millions

Washington, DC — On Tuesday, December 7 at 3:00 PM EST/ 12:00 PM PST, U.S. Senators Patty Murray (D-WA) and Tina Smith (D-MN) and U.S. Representative Anna Eshoo (D-CA-18) will join Protect Our Care and Kevin Wren, a health care storyteller from Washington, to discuss the Build Back Better Act’s critical provisions to make insulin more affordable. The bill gives Medicare the power to negotiate for lower insulin prices and caps insulin costs at $35 per month for millions of patients with health insurance.

For decades, high drug prices have been a top concern for Americans from all walks of life. In addition to lowering insulin costs, the Build Back Better Act works to deliver relief to families by giving Medicare the power to negotiate, cracking down on outrageous price increases, and capping seniors’ out-of-pocket drug costs. During the call, speakers will call for immediate passage of the Build Back Better Act in the Senate with all of the bill’s health care measures fully intact.
