CMS recently issued a brochure to Medicare beneficiaries outlining the details of a provision of healthcare reform designed to provide relief to seniors in the prescription drug coverage gap, or “donut hole.” Beginning in mid-June, seniors who have reached the coverage gap will receive a one-time, tax-free rebate of $250. As part of healthcare reform, the donut hole will be eliminated entirely by 2020.
