Voice For Health & Progress
  • Nell is a widow who has been enrolled in Medicare Part D since the program began. At age five she was diagnosed with pediatric rheumatoid arthritis (RA), which now causes severe chronic pain when she is not able to take her medication. In addition to RA, Nell requires prescriptions for fibromyalgia and diabetes, as well as thyroid and digestive issues.

    Nell says Medicare Part D helps her afford her medications. She says she’s not sure what she would do without Medicare Part D, especially with her limited income.

    Nell wants Congress to continue to help individuals who rely on Medicare Part D so they can have access to affordable prescription drug coverage.
