Today is Donut Hole Day

It’s a dark day for the nearly 7 Million seniors and disabled Americans who have or will soon fall into the Part D ‘Donut Hole Trap:’ a massive gap in coverage for those covered by the program whose annual costs fall between $2,250 and $5,100.

According to a recent analysis from the Institute for America’s Future, the average Medicare Part D beneficiary will have fallen into the Donut Hole by this day, September 22, 2006. Because of the costly, confusing and corrupt way in which Part D was created, nearly 7 million seniors and the disabled will remember this day as the day President Bush and those who drafted Part D abandoned them in favor of the prescription drug industry.
