Patients Rising Now joined 70 other patients groups in a letter to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on the expansion of the Low Income Subsidy (LIS). As part of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), the LIS was expanded to include beneficiaries who make 50% more than the poverty line annually as income. The expansion not only helps beneficiaries who were having difficulties paying for their care, it also accounts for the effects on inflation on medical expenses. The letter commended the expansion of the LIS, as well as called for new efforts to educate beneficiaries on the program and simplify the application process.
