The single largest question we receive on a day to day basis in the health care industry is how health care reform will change current Medicare services.
While in many cases it is too early to tell until reforms are completely implemented, the reform laws as they stand today do have one major boon… the closing of the doughnut holes.
Many on Medicare fall into a coverage cap, or “doughnut hole”, which will slowly be removed under the new law. The gap will garduallly narrow until it disappears in 2020 allowing for greatly reduced out of pocket drug costs.
