New National Survey Reveals Eight in 10 Seniors Satisfied With Medicare Drug Benefit
Date:4/29/2009

Medicare Today releases new survey data on Medicare prescription drug benefit

WASHINGTON, April 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Healthcare leaders today announced the latest results of a national survey of seniors showing that the vast majority of Medicare beneficiaries remain satisfied with the Medicare Part D drug benefit. Medicare Today has been tracking senior satisfaction with the drug benefit since 2006.

The survey, commissioned by Medicare Today, a project of the Healthcare Leadership Council, and conducted in March by KRC Research, confirms that senior Medicare beneficiaries continue to see the prescription drug program as a success. Overall satisfaction with the Medicare prescription drug benefit has grown from 78 percent to 84 percent, up six points since early 2006.

"Before the Medicare Part D drug benefit was created, many seniors faced uncertainty when it came to accessing prescription drugs. The drug benefit provides millions of seniors with peace of mind," said Mary R. Grealy, president of the Healthcare Leadership Council, a coalition of the nation's leading health care companies and organizations

"With the economic crisis threatening many household budgets, it is important that Medicare Part D drug benefit continue to provide access to prescription drugs to the millions of seniors who depend on the program to help them live healthy lives," said former U.S. Senator and Medicare Today Co-Chairman John Breaux. "And in light of the growing debate about health care reform this year, it's important to understand the value of the Medicare prescription drug benefit as a part of the U.S. health care system and how seniors feel about the benefit."

"We also need to make sure that seniors know that a low income subsidy is available for those who may need extra financial assistance," Grealy added.
