Sinema Office Statement on Historic Medicare Drug Negotiation Agreement

Nov 2, 2021

WASHINGTON – The office of U.S. Senator Kyrsten Sinema released the following statement regarding a new agreement on a historic Medicare drug negotiation plan:
“After Senator Sinema reached earlier agreement with President Biden to include historic Medicare drug negotiation in the reconciliation package – policies that were omitted from the initial framework at the request of members of the U.S. House – Speaker Pelosi reached out to Senator Sinema this past weekend to continue negotiations. The Senator welcomes a new agreement on a historic, transformative Medicare drug negotiation plan that will reduce out-of-pocket costs for seniors – ensuring drug prices cannot rise faster than inflation – save taxpayer dollars, and protect innovation to ensure Arizonans and Americans continue to have access to life-saving medications, and new cures and therapeutics. We also thank Representatives Peters and Schrader for their hard work securing this historic agreement.”
