Sen. Rockefeller saving us money!

Disease-modifying drugs can cost upwards of $30,000 a year out-of-pocket for people with multiple sclerosis. But Senator John D. Rockefeller IV (WV) is trying to help out.

On Aug. 7th, he introduced the Affordable Access to Prescription Medications Act of 2009. It seeks to cap monthly out-of-pocket expenses for prescription drugs at $200 per medication or $500 total for people on more than one therapy.
