The planned withdrawal from the prescription drug market of Namenda in its twice-daily formulation appears designed to force a vulnerable population suffering from a severe chronic illness to shift to a reformulated version of the product for the purpose of limiting generic competition and preserving monopoly profits. Actions of this type undermine consumer choice and generic competition. As the primary source of financing for dementia care, including Namenda, the federal government in particular would overpay relative to what it would have paid had the generic product been permitted to freely compete with the newer reformulated product.

The Affordable Care Act includes several provisions that are expected to significantly improve women's health. The Affordable Care Act improves coverage for important preventive services and maternity care, promotes higher quality care for older women, and ends the gender discrimination that requires women to pay more for the same insurance coverage as men. Over one million young adult women have already gained health insurance coverage because of the Affordable Care Act and 13 million more women will gain coverage by 2016. [7 PDF pages]

The National Alzheimer's Project Act (NAPA) creates an important opportunity to build upon and leverage HHS programs and other federal efforts to help change the trajectory of Alzheimer's disease and related diseases (ADRD). The law calls for a National Plan for ADRD with input from a public-private Advisory Council on Alzheimer's Research, Care, and Services. The Advisory Council will make recommendations to HHS for priority actions to expand, coordinate, and condense programs to improve the health outcomes of people with ADRD and reduce the financial burden of these conditions on those with the diseases, their families, and society.
