Led by Pfizer Inc., the drug industry will also begin offering discounted drugs to Medicare patients next year. That’s part of the $80 billion concessions agreed to by drug companies. Generic copies of biotechnology drugs will be allowed for the first time, and the FDA must draft rules to govern the process.

Although we offer Medicare Supplement Plans, Medicare Advantage Plans, and Part D Prescription Plans, we are NOT a giant corporation with phone banks of operators.
