  • Get prepared before hitting doughnut hole

    By FRANK BAILEY
    AARP Director of Health

     A quarter-million Floridians age 65-plus will bite into Medicare’s “Doughnut Hole” in 2011.
    It’s not a treat.  The “Doughnut Hole” is another name for the coverage gap in Medicare’s Part D prescription drug benefit.  Medicare, the federal health insurance program for people 65 and older and for some younger persons with disabilities, offers coverage to help people pay for their prescription drugs.

    We can't allow Medicare to be replaced by private insurance. Paul Ryan, the House Budget Committee Chairman from Wisconsin, has been pushing a bill to give seniors financial aid to purchase private insurance.
