Vaccine Discounts 2023

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Price List was updated in September 2023, highlighting current antiviral and vaccine prices. Brand-name medication prices decreased for the 5th consecutive year in 2022.

On August 22, 2023, the journal Frontiers published Generic Cardiology Drug Price Study: The Potential Benefits of the Marc Cuban Cost Plus Drug Company Model. There is enormous potential for cost savings in the U.S. market for generic cardiology drugs.

Vaccines Price For Children 2023

The Vaccines For Children (VFC) program is a federally funded service that provides vaccines at no cost to qualifying children. Eligible children for VFC vaccines are entitled to receive those vaccines recommended by the U.S. CDC, as does the Texas Vaccines for Children Program. This CDC table assists VFC providers in understanding the programs' requirements. And UNICEF delivers access to essential vaccines for children in need worldwide.

Vaccine Price For Seniors 2023

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 eliminates out-of-pocket costs for vaccines under Medicare Part D. This Act aligns with policies under Medicare Part B and the Affordable Care Act and removes pharmacy counter barriers that should result in more seniors being vaccinated. Consumers can also visit BeSafeRx to learn how to buy medicine online safely.
