As July comes to a close this week, there’s one big birthday left to celebrate – the anniversary of Medicare! On July 30, 1965, Medicare was signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson. This week, as we celebrate 51 years of Medicare, we wanted to highlight some of our Medicare resources.

Interested in Part D? Here are some of our favorite Part D resources:

And in case you missed it, we celebrated the 10th anniversary of Part D this past January. For all of our Part D resources, visit: PhRMA.org/PartD.

We’ve also got you covered with a number of Part B 101 resources, including “3 things to know about Medicare Part B,” “What is ASP?” and “Why Average Sales Price works.” For all of our Part B resources, visit: PhRMA.org/PartB.
