Obama And Prescription Drug “Donut Hole” For Medicare Recipients

President Obama achieved a great result when he announced a few days ago that prescription drug companies had agreed to lower by half the prices of name brand prescription drugs for senior citizens on Medicare.

The problem with the Medicare Part D plan is that there is a "donut hole"  where senior citizens have no protection, starting after $2700 in drug costs, and continuing to the threshold of $6100.  Now the prices being cut in half for that gap of costs will be a boon to those who certainly cannot afford the expense.

Obama is to be commended for working with the drug companies and getting this concession.  Also, the drug companies should be commended for understanding what their responsibility is to senior citizens.
