Medicare's Coverage of Alzheimer's and Weight-Loss Drugs

Episode Notes

In this episode, Friends Talk Money co-hosts Pam Krueger, Richard Eisenberg and Terry Savage discuss what Medicare does and doesn't cover when it comes to treatments for Alzheimer's Disease and drugs for weight loss. A recent FDA decision means Medicare will be covering a new, game-changing Alzheimer's drug for many people 65 and older, but there are some strings attached. By contrast, Medicare currently won't pay for drugs to lower weight, although it will pay for weight-loss surgery in some cases. An act of Congress, however, could change the rules about Medicare and weight-loss drugs.
