Americans may soon see some major relief when it comes to home health and prescription costs.
Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney was in Middletown Monday to highlight what could be on the way under the Build Back Better Act.
Under it, seniors would see a $2,000 cap for home health and prescription costs each year.
The plan also lowers the price of insulin to $35 and invests billions of dollars to incentivize people to become home health aides.
“Help is on the way for seniors and people with disabilities who are trying to get the services they need at home in the best care setting imaginable,” Rep. Maloney said. “In addition to that, it's going to cut the cost of prescription drugs."
The Build Back Better Act passed in the House, but senators are still debating the bill.
