AAM Supports Updating Medicare to Lower Costs for America’s Seniors

Even though generics and biosimilars provide consistent savings for taxpayers and consumers, today’s Medicare patients too often face obstacles to using these lower-cost options. This is a result of outdated policies that can unintentionally encourage plans to prioritize formulary placement of high-cost brand drugs and that fail to reflect the emergence of new competitive therapies.

White Paper: Sidelined: How Seniors Miss Out On Savings Available Through Generic Substitution

Generic medicines are an integral component of America’s pharmaceutical care system, driving substantial savings to patients and public programs. Even as spending on prescription drugs continues to rise in public programs, the use of generic medicines has blunted increasing brand drug prices, generating savings of $293 billion in 2018 alone. In fact, the average price of generic drugs covered under Medicare Part D in 2017 was only 26% of their average price in 2006.
