Biden: My Build Back Better Plan ‘Would Add Hearing, Dental and Vision Benefits to Medicare’

‘My build back better plan will lower prescription drug costs by finally giving Medicare the power to negotiate the prices of the drugs they purchase for the American people’

EXCERPT:

BIDEN: “My Build Back Better plan will lower prescription drug costs by finally giving Medicare the power to negotiate the prices of the drugs they purchase for the American people, saving Americans hundreds of billions of dollars. On top of that, my plan would add hearing, dental and vision benefits to Medicare. Right now there are hundreds of thousands of Americans who need home and community-based care services and my plan expands home care for older Americans and people with disabilities, while improving jobs and the pay for the workers who care for them. My plan will also provide access to quality affordable child care with new and upgraded child care facilities all across the country. Middle-class families will pay no more than 7% of their income for highly qualified care for children up to the age of 5. The most hard-pressed working families will not pay a dime."
