Protect Our Care to Hit the Road for “Lower Costs, Better Care” Nationwide Bus Tour with 2 Stops in New Hampshire To Tell Americans That Help Is on the Way Thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act

CONCORD, NH —  Protect Our Care has announced its fourth nationwide bus tour, entitled Lower Costs, Better Care: Help is on the Way, is coming to New Hampshire this October. From Maine to Nevada, elected officials, storytellers, and health care advocates will celebrate The Inflation Reduction Act’s measures to drive down health care costs and to let Americans know how and when they can access these new benefits. Kicking off on October 3, Care Force One will roll into districts across the country, including in New Hampshire, for events to reach out to Americans about how new laws could save them thousands of dollars a year on health care. Over five weeks, Care Force One will travel to more than 20 states, make more than 40 stops, and travel nearly 12,000 miles. The tour will be in  Concord, New Hampshire on Tuesday, October 4, 2022.

Tour partners include the New Hampshire Public Health Association, Granite State Progress and the NH Oral Health Coalition.

“Care Force One will crisscross the nation this fall with one message: Thanks to President Biden and Democrats in Congress, help is on the way,” said Protect Our Care Executive Director Brad Woodhouse. “President Biden and New Hampshire lawmakers took on opposition and Big Pharma’s lobbying power to deliver lower premiums and prescription drug costs for millions of Americans. Throughout the tour, people from all walks of life will share what this bill means to them and their families. Between saving seniors thousands on their prescriptions and lowering monthly premium costs for working families, this bill stands to help millions afford lifesaving health care.” 

The “Lower Costs, Better Care” five-week tour will promote the work of lawmakers who fought tirelessly to pass this historic bill.

"The New Hampshire Public Health Association (NHPHA) supports universal access to high quality evidence-based, integrated health care at a level of cost that does not create barriers to care," said the NHPHA Executive Director, Hanan Babikir Bedri. "Thanks to the NH delegation in Congress, today we celebrate lower prescription drug costs, healthcare costs, and energy costs to Americans from all walks of life, including older adults, people with disabilities, people in rural communities, and people of color.”

The Inflation Reduction Act will lower costs and improve health care for millions of Americans, with help on the way in just a matter of months. The legislation will lower premiums for 13 million Americans and drive down prescription drug prices by giving Medicare the power to negotiate, capping seniors’ out-of-pocket drug costs at $2,000 per year, limiting insulin copays, and stopping many of Big Pharma’s egregious price hikes. Decades in the making, this bill will help lower costs for millions of working families and seniors, and it will address the deep racial inequities in our health care system.
