We need YOUR help!
Retail prices for some of the most widely used brand name prescription drugs continue to increase twice as much as inflation, making these life-sustaining medicines potentially unaffordable to many older North Dakotans. North Dakotans are paying more for nearly everything today – from groceries to gas to housing.
For older North Dakotans, the problem of inflation is only made worse by the ever-increasing price of prescription drugs. If consumer prices had risen as fast as drug prices over the last 15 years, gas would now cost $12.20 a gallon, and milk would be $13 a gallon.
Every day we hear from older North Dakotans who are forced to choose between paying for the medicines they need and paying for other essentials like food and heat. We need your legislators to take action now to bring down the price of prescription drugs in North Dakota.
Send an email to your legislators today and tell them to support the ND PERS Prescription Drug Piolt Program.
