NRLN gains ground on two major health care issues!

For the last four years the NRLN and our grassroots advocates have lobbied to get movement on lowering the cost of safe prescription drugs by importation and Medicare being allowed by law to do competitive bidding on behalf on Medicare Part D participants.

At a town hall meeting the NRLN arranged on August 26 with Rep. Kevin Brady (TX-08), Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, we learned that when Congress passed the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 that It gave the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services the authority to set regulations to import prescription drugs from Canada. On September 6, I sent a letter to HHS Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell urging her to exercise the authority given to the HHS Secretary in the 2003 law to authorize importation of prescription drugs from Canada.

A version of that letter was presented in more than 60 meetings with Representatives, Senators and/or members of their staffs during the NRLN’s Fall Fly-In, September 27 and 28. During each appointment the request was made that the letter, or a rewritten version, be sent to Secretary Burwell. We asked that the Representative or Senator get additional signatures from his or her colleagues.

It turned out that 33 Representatives stepped up the game beyond our request. They signed an October 12 letter that asked President Obama to:

  • Explore implementing drug importation under the Medicare Prescription Drug Improvement and Modernization Act of 2003 that gave this authority to the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
  • Instruct the Director of the National Institutes of Health to ensure that drugs researched and developed with taxpayer funds are kept accessible to the public by authorizing new competition for unaffordable, monopoly-priced medications. (The NRLN had lobbied for this on Capitol Hill during out February 2016 conference.)
  • Address reforms to more effectively combat pharmaceutical companies from blocking generic drug competition through the practice known as pay-for-delay.(This is part of the NRLN’s Legislative Agenda that we have been lobbying for with members of Congress.)

For the past three years, the NRLN and our grassroots advocates have been lobbying for legislation to eliminate Medicare’s 3-day “inpatient” requirement in order for Medicare beneficiaries to qualify for coverage of skilled nursing facility (SNF) services. Under the current Medicare payment policy, for SNF services to be covered by Medicare, the beneficiary must have an “inpatient” hospital stay of at least 3 days. Beneficiaries are often unaware that the hospital has admitted them for “observation” rather than as an “inpatient”. Those admitted for “observation” who later receive SNF services are surprised when they are billed for the services.

This week Michigan Senator Gary Peters cosponsored a bipartisan bill that, if passed, would to fix the current law and ensure the classification of a hospital stay does not increase cost for Medicare beneficiaries needing specialized care in a skilled nursing facility.

The National Retiree Legislative Network and the National Chrysler Retirement Organization (NCRO) were among the retirement advocacy organizations, including AARP, given credit in Senator Peters’ press release for supporting the introduction of the bill. The NRLN credits NRLN director Jay Kuhnie, NCRO President, Deb Morrissett, NCRO Director, Bob Tompkins, NRLN Treasurer and Detroit Edison of Retirees (DEAR) President, and Larry Hice, General Motors Retirees Chapter President and their team who have lobbied for the elimination of Medicare’s 3-day rule during a number of appointments with Senator Peters during the NRLN’s Washington, DC meetings.

What I have described above are the latest examples of the ground that can be gain by being relentless in lobbying for issues important to retirees. Of course, we will have to continue to follow up in order to achieve what has been asked of President Obama by the 33 Representatives (and hopefully more to come). The Action Alert sent out this week on this issue was our first step. The NRLN’s Legislative Affairs Committee and Legislative Action Planning Committee will track the bill to eliminate Medicare’s 3-day rulel. I’ll let you know if your help is needed to lobby for passage of the bill, which does not yet have a number.

NRLN Action Alert

Stop the Effort to Privatize Medicare

Tell your members of Congress stop the effort to privatize Medicare through a “premium support” plan that seniors would pay to insurance companies. This would certainly lead to seniors paying more for health care. Please email the NRLN’s sample letter to your Representative and Senators to urge them to prevent the privatization of Medicare.

Here are the easy steps to follow on this Action Alert:

The link http://www.congressweb.com/NRLN/46 will present the sample letters for you to email to President Barack and a copy to your U.S. Representative and U.S. Senators. If you have a problem with the link, go to www.nrln.org and click on the “Take Action Now!” near the top of the NRLN website home page. When the Action Alert appears, click on the “Write your Legislators” link.

When you have accessed the sample letter, to the left of the letter are windows to type in your contact information required by the President and members of Congress so they know they are receiving an email from a constituent. If you have sent previous NRLN emails to your members of Congress your contact information may be automatically displayed.

Personalize the letters by editing in your own comments.

Click on the "Preview" button and the letters addressed to President Obama and your Representative and two Senators will appear. Their names will be automatically added in the letter’s greeting. Check to make sure the letters to your members of Congress appear correct and then click "Send".

Message from the NRLN President

DuPont Current and Future Retirees,

I want to extend to you a warm welcome as a newly formed Chapter of the NRLN.

The NRLN is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots coalition representing the interests of more than 2 million retirees, who came to the NRLN from retiree associations, NRLN chapters and individual members who have retired from nearly 200 different U.S. corporations and public entities. Members live in all 50 states and practically all Congressional districts and are working together to preserve the retirement benefits they earned during their many years of productive employment.

The NRLN does not provide legal advice. Nor does NRLN interface with employers, representing their retirees. It is up to Chapters to handle any communications with their former employers as they wish. However, the NRLN does provide services which are very valuable - namely the ability to communicate with members of Congress and Congressional committees that have oversight of retirement issues and with federal agencies that have the responsibility to protect the interests of retirees. In addition, the NRLN knows the requirements of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.

The NRLN's staff in Washington, DC uses the rapport they have with U.S. Representatives and Senators and their staff members as a communications channel to advance legislation important to retirees. In addition we sit on critical advocacy group committees that include AARP, the ERISA Industrial Council, Pension Rights Center and other groups that meet regularly with House and Senate key committees with jurisdiction over retiree legislation.

While the NRLN and AARP cooperate on a number of issues, what differentiates the NRLN is that we work directly with our Chapters and Retiree Associations in problem solving on pension issues. When necessary the NRLN facilitates and accompanies leaders of its member organizations for meetings with the Pension Benefits Guaranty Corporation (PBGC), Department of Treasury, Department of Labor, Employee Benefits Security Administration, staff members of Representatives and Senators and staffs of Congressional committees.

Based in Washington, D.C., the NRLN is the only nationwide organization solely dedicated to representing the interests of retirees and future retirees. Formed in 2002, the NRLN endeavors to secure federal legislation for retirement income security and reduce the cost of health care along with keeping Social Security and Medicare strong.

You are encouraged to learn more about the NRLN by taking the time to browse this NRLN website. Click on the Home Page link and navigate this website through the use of the tabs and the drop down menus. Be sure to review the Legislative Agenda and go to the Archives and read a few of the back issues of the FOCUS newsletter.

Sincerely,
Bill Kadereit, President
National Retiree Legislative Network


NRLN Action Alert: Tell Congress: Don’t Eliminate SHIP Needed for Medicare Advice

The Senate Appropriations Committee made a blunder when it voted to abolish the entire $52.1 million in federal funding for the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) in the budget bill. SHIP has been a valuable program for older adults and younger people with disabilities who need advice on complex traditional Medicare, Medicare Supplemental Insurance (Medigap) and Medicare Advantage programs. This has the effect of leaving these citizens at the mercy of the private insurance companies who may increase premiums or deductibles and may change physician provider networks at will. With the huge influx of Americans turning 65, killing the SHIP program is a classic example of Congressional short-sightedness. Click here to take action to email the NRLN’s sample letters to tell your members of Congress to restore SHIP funding.

To: NRLN DuPont Retiree Chapter Members
Report on NRLN Fly-In Event in Washington on March 13-15, 2017

I attended the Spring NRLN (National Retiree Legislative Network) Fly-In event in Washington, DC on March 13-15. About 30 retirees from all over the U.S. attended and met with members of Congress to advocate for legislation protecting retiree income and benefits and to reduce the skyrocketing cost of prescription drugs. Three of the four focus areas for this event were the same as last fall's event, with one new area - the protection of retiree benefits in bankruptcies.

An unexpected snowstorm caused confusion and some meetings had to be re-scheduled or canceled, however, in the end it turned out to be a productive event. I have learned from last year's experience and from discussions with NRLN executives not to expect quick actions on newly proposed legislation, rather that lobbying requires patience and persistence, more like a marathon than a sprint race.

The following is a high-level summary of the legislative proposals (See links below to more detailed information) we presented to the Congressional Delegations:
  1. NRLN urges passage of proposed legislation now in Congress:
    • S. 41 and H.R. 242, the Medicare Prescription Drug Price Negotiation Act of 2017, which would reduce the cost of prescription drugs by allowing Medicare to negotiate the best possible price of prescription drugs.
    • S. 92, the Safe and Affordable Drugs from Canada Act of 2017, to allow individuals to import a 90-day supply of prescription drugs from an approved Canadian pharmacy.
    • S. 469 and H.R. 1245, the Affordable and Safe Prescription Drug Importation Act of 2017, would lower cost of prescription drugs by allowing Americans to import safe, low-cost medicine from Canada and
    • would authorize the HHS Secretary in two years to allow importation from other advanced countries.
    • S. 124, the Preserve Access to Affordable Generics Act of 2017, to expand consumers’ access to the cost-saving generic drugs and increase competition between drug manufacturers to end “pay for delay” deals—the practice of brand-name drug manufacturers using anti-competitive pay-off agreements to keep more affordable generic equivalents off the market.
    • In addition, the Secretary of Health and Human Services has the authority (under the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act of 2003) to issue an order to begin legal importation from Canada. We submitted an NRLN composed letter to our representatives to send to the Secretary, urging him to exercise this authority. Three Senators (Grassley, McCain and Klobucher) have already done this. Members of Congress who have opposed importation from Canada have cited drug safety concerns. However, the NRLN believes that this could be managed. After all we import foodstuffs from all over the world and the FDA has managed to keep us safe from bad food.
  2. NRLN’s proposals to provide protections for pension plan participants in pension plan mergers: While plan mergers can be beneficial by reducing administrative expenses, and increasing the fund's ability to get better returns, the NRLN is concerned about a form of financial engineering whereby plan sponsors have combined two (or more) plans, some better funded than others. If the merged plan then becomes funded above the 80% level the required minimum contribution is reduced. This harms participants in the better funded plan. NRLN proposes legislation to require plan sponsors to give notice of impending mergers to the PBGC, and that PBGC should have the authority to approve or disapprove plan mergers, and that the plan merger should not reduce the required plan minimum contribution for a period of 5 years.
  3. NRLN's proposals to provide protections for pension plan participants in corporate mergers, acquisitions and spin-offs: Corporate mergers, acquisitions and spin-offs can result in several situations that harm pension plan beneficiaries. Activity in this area involving foreign firms is especially risky to pension plan participants. NRLN proposes to update several ERISA provisions to ensure that these activities do not unnecessarily increase the risk of a distress termination and pension losses for plan participants.
  4. NRLN's proposals for bankruptcy law reform to protect benefits in corporate bankruptcies: Many NRLN members have lost and/or are facing loss of benefits due to corporate bankruptcies (for example, Kodak, Chrysler, Avaya, Delphi, etc.) and some related their experiences at the meeting. NRLN proposes strengthening current bankruptcy codes to give retirees higher status in bankruptcy courts, comparable to the status of secured creditors. Although at present this does not seem to be a concern for DuPont retirees, we never know what might happen when the merged company splits into three, or when the future companies decide to sell off under-performing businesses.

Our proposals were well developed, in concise but comprehensive packages, with Executive Summaries and legislative language to facilitate amendments to existing laws. You can review the key documents in full detail at www.nrln.org under the Legislative Agenda tab or by going directly to this link. The Talking Points were used to guide our discussion, and the Executive Summaries along with suggested language for amendments, were left behind for our legislators to review and decide whether they will support them.

Although Representatives and Senators were very busy with hearings and other activities related to the incoming administration, I was able to meet with staff members of Delaware Senator Coons (see attached photo) and West Virginia Senator Manchin. I was not able to arrange a meeting with Delaware's Senator Carper nor was I able to meet with Delaware's new Representative Lisa Blunt Rochester (I am working to schedule a phone call or meeting in Delaware with her). I chose to meet with Manchin's staff because he represents many DuPont Retirees. In the future, I hope to meet with members of Congress from other states with large numbers of DuPont retirees.

With political gridlock, we cannot reasonably expect rapid action on any legislative proposals. However, our proposals are not especially politically sensitive or controversial, and our representatives and their staffs seemed keenly interested in them. The prescription drug issue may be one area that we will get some action on in the coming year. Many members of Congress are in favor of our proposals and the President has expressed his support for allowing Medicare to negotiate drug prices and for importation of medicines. I encourage you to contact your own members of Congress and advocate for action on this issue as well as the others. You can find your Legislator's support or non-support for these issues here.

You can send them a message at either their website or at this link.

Creating legislative change is difficult and slow, but we can’t expect progress if we don’t try. We will continue to press our politicians to improve the legal protection of retirees’ income security, because we know from the experience of others, that when companies restructure businesses, post-merger / split decisions can lead to significant adjustments to retiree pension and healthcare benefits. I am looking forward to attending the September NRLN Annual Leadership Conference in Washington, DC, and going to Capitol Hill again to advocate for issues important to all retirees.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
