CMS announces 2007 drug plan options...
Today, Secretary Leavitt and Administrator McClellan announced publicly the drug plan options that will be available to Medicare beneficiaries in 2007. Strong competitive pressure resulted in bids that averaged 10 percent less than in 2006. In summary, there will be more plans with coverage in the gap, more drugs covered, and more help for beneficiaries in choosing the plan that’s best for them in 2007.
