Arizonans are skipping medications because of cost. Sen. Kelly is advocating to change that

Judy Wilson, an older Arizona resident with multiple sclerosis, opted not to take her medication last year because she couldn’t afford it. “The decision to stop my medication was based on money, not medicine,” Wilson said Tuesday at a U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging hearing hosted by U.S. Sen. Mark Kelly, D-Ariz., in Phoenix. The hearing focused on lowering prescription drug prices for seniors.
