Medicare & the Inflation Reduction Act
In 2022, Congress passed the Inflation Reduction Act, which included big changes for Medicare recipients.
- The cost of a month’s supply of each Part D-covered insulin is capped at $35, and you don’t have to pay a deductible for insulin.
- Medicare can negotiate directly with manufacturers for the price of certain high-spending brand-name Medicare Part B and Part D drugs that don’t have competition.
- People with Medicare Part D drug coverage now pay nothing out-of-pocket for even more vaccines.
Navigating the complex world of Medicare can be challenging. The North Dakota Insurance Department offers the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) program to assist residents with finding the right coverage and answering questions. When it comes to Medicare, you are not alone.
Our trained counselors can assist with all Medicare issues, including Original Medicare, Medicare Part D, Medicare Advantage plans, and long-term care insurance.
