The Right Care Alliance is campaigning against the new Alzheimers drug Aduhelm because it doesn’t work, carries a risk of serious harms, and the price gouging is going to cost seniors the highest Medicare premium increase in history. In a rare move, Medicare has said they are not going to pay for this drug without more research, but there is going to be a big push by the pharma sector and their astroturf patient groups to reverse this excellent decision by Medicare. I’m writing to you because we asking everyone we know to go to the CMS website and offer comments to show there is public support for their decision. It’s easy. Here’s the link. And here’s a link to a package you can download to help with talking points for your comments and for reaching out to more people to join.It’s critical we do this in the next two weeks. We know the big drug companies are going to spend their $$$ trying to reverse this decision, but it’s crucial that we don’t let them win.

Hi! The Right Care Alliance is campaigning against Aduhelm, a new Alzheimer’s drug that doesn’t work, carries risk of serious harms, and the price gouging is going to cost seniors the highest Medicare premium increase in history. Medicare has said that they won’t pay for this drug, but Big Pharma is fighting this decision. I’m hoping that you could go to the CMS website and write comments to show there is public support for their decision. Here’s the link.
Thanks so much, and please let us know once you’re done so we can keep track of how many comments we are submitting!
