BX seniors attend Medicare meeting to better understand discount drug cards
Bronx seniors who failed to apply for the Medicare prescription discount card because they found the new program confusing attended a presentation Wednesday to hopefully clear things up.
One Bronx senior said she didn't understand whether the card is good for everyone or just for those with certain income levels. A representative for Medicare services says it's important for seniors to know the drugs they are on and the dosage they are taking for each one.
The seniors who attended the meeting found it very helpful and said they had a better understanding of how the discount drug card will benefit them.
The Medicare discount drug cards took effect Tuesday.
