Our Work

Millions of older adults and people with disabilities who rely on Medicare for their health risk falling into a financial sinkhole when they approach the pharmacy counter. It’s outrageous that older adults may skip doses of their lifesaving medications because they just can’t afford them after paying rent, buying groceries, and putting gas in their cars. Some even worry they can’t afford to retire. No one should be forced to choose between their health and financial security to get the medication they need.

On August 29, 2023, the US Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services officially announced the first ten drugs they will negotiate with drug corporations to get fair prices for the millions of older adults and people with disabilities that rely on Medicare. This is a huge step forward in our ‘David versus Goliath’ battle against drug companies’ greed, and for the first time in history, the stage is now set to lower drug prices.

Our Mission

Our mission is to expose pharmaceutical companies putting profits over patients. The Pay Less for RX Campaign unveils unjust practices that make life-saving medications unattainable. Despite claims of innovation justifying high drug prices, our research shows profits fuel stock buybacks, not innovation.


Families USA challenges companies like Merck, prioritizing profits over Medicare-dependent individuals. In response to the White House's Medicare price negotiations announcement, our Pay Less for Rx campaign aims to protect this win for affordable medications.


Join us in rejecting patient exploitation and advocating for fair pricing, transparency, and accountability in the pharmaceutical industry. Together, let's break the chains of unaffordable medication.
