Part B Access for Seniors and Physicians (ASP) Coalition Letter

Home / Policy & Legislation / Part B Access for Seniors and Physicians (ASP) Coalition Letter

As you know, Medicare Part B is vital to maintaining the health of seniors and individuals with disabilities. Not only does the program cover routine medical care provided in a doctor’s office, it also covers medications administered in an outpatient setting. These medications are administered to some of the most vulnerable patients enrolled in Medicare since they typically treat serious conditions including cancer, macular degeneration, hypertension, rheumatoid arthritis, mental illness, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and primary immunodeficiency diseases. These medications are essential for the seniors who use them, and reflect a very small percentage of Medicare spending, just three percent.
