Obama Healthcare Reforms Fall Short, but Closes the 'Donut Hole'

WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- With his proposed health care reform plan, President Barack Obama has set his sights on cutting name-brand prescription drug costs by 50 percent for Medicare patients who fall into the "Part D" coverage gap, universally known as the "donut hole." Plan advocates rave about the potential cost-cutting and feel it's a promising start to health care reform. Yet some of the most powerful lobbyists want a revised program that completely eliminates the donut hole, which prevents Medicare coverage between two points of spending. This approach would cost the federal government $134 billion over a 10-year period. And while the various sides debate the details, most people don't realize that a solution already exists. There's an option for even greater savings that's gap-free and available right now.

In fact, these savings are available to everyone, not just patients over 65 or on Medicare. There are no restrictions on who qualifies to enroll in It's all-inclusive, with no gimmicks or coverage gaps.

A look at one customer, Mary, provides the perfect illustration of how's program works. This particular patient takes one 75-mg Plavix tablet daily, one 20-mg Lipitor tablet and a 200-mg capsule of Celebrex. Regular retail costs would run her $4,860 annually, but she's on Medicare, so she spends $3,056 for out-of-pocket prescription expenses. With, however, Mary spends only $860 a year - $2,200 less than her Medicare rates. Saving 61 percent a year with, Mary doesn't fall into the infamous "donut hole" and keeps more money in pocket than could ever be possible through any plan now in debate on Capitol Hill.
