PFM Statement on the 21st Century Cures Act

Thursday, May 21, 2015

 
The Partnership for the Future of Medicare (PFM) commends the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s unanimous approval of the 21 Century Cures Act. This promising piece of legislation aims to expand medical innovation and accelerate the pace of new cures and treatments. Unfortunately, this medical progress will come at the cost of seniors’ Part D benefits.  Instead of making additional cuts to Medicare, Congress should protect a successful program that millions of seniors depend on and consider spending offsets that do not harm beneficiaries.
 
The Partnership for the Future of Medicare is a bi-partisan organization focused on ensuring the long-term security of Medicare.
