Placeholder Image
From D'Anna BowmanState director, AARP Wisconsin, MadisonStarting June 10, some seniors with Medicare Part D will automatically receive a $250 check in the mail. This rebate is the beginning of the gradual close of the infamous "doughnut hole" - or coverage gap - where people with Part D coverage are responsible for 100 percent of their drug costs. As part of the new health care law, people who fall into the doughnut hole this year will receive this $250 rebate check.
