Goals of Medicare Part D met according to Reuters

In a recent article at Reuters, they note that in a study of 7,000 senior Americans, after 2006, when heart failure medication was covered through their insurance, the number of prescriptions filled was increased. They also found that in 2008, the out of pocket expenses for seniors decreased 16% while prescriptions filled increased by 7%. All of this shows that the goals of Medicare Part D, helping seniors, especially those with low incomes, afford needed medications, are being met.
