Doughnut hole in Medicare eyed

Washington Post, December 28, 2009

Six years after Congress added a prescription drug benefit to Medicare, Democrats in the House and Senate are poised to make a change that would get rid of a gap that forces millions of elderly patients with especially high expenses for medicine to pay for much of it on their own, the Washington Post reports. The closing of the unusual gap in Medicare drug coverage would "forever end this indefensible injustice for American's seniors," Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-NV) said in announcing that the Senate would join the House in supporting the change.
