AAF Event: The Future of Medicare Part D, Innovation & Lessons Learned

Yesterday the American Action Forum hosted an event on the future of Medicare Part D. Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC) served as the keynote speaker and was followed by a panel comprised of Douglas Holtz-Eakin, President of the American Action Forum; former Senator Blanche L. Lincoln (D-AR), Founder of the Lincoln Policy Group; Mike Mason, Vice President of Lilly Diabetes; and Mike Anderson, Chief Pharmacy Officer for UnitedHealthcare. The Washington Post’s Paige Cunningham moderated the discussion.

Watch the event here.

In light of the event, AAF released new research on Medicare Part D’s private-sector model which has largely contributed to the program’s success. The research concludes that the Medicare Part D program is proof that a federal entitlement program can meet its mission while remaining under budget if the right incentives are coupled with the appropriate consumer protections.
