WASHINGTON — The Biden administration wants to rein in fees charged in Medicare by controversial middlemen that play a crucial behind-the-scenes role in the pharmaceutical pricing system.
It would be a huge win for pharmacies, which have been lobbying in Washington for the change for years. The proposal would also lower out-of-pocket costs for some Medicare patients, but not all, as plans would likely raise premiums to compensate. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said the agency expects “more than half” of traditional Medicare patients would see lower total costs.
