Good news for people with Medicare who reach the "Donut Hole" in their prescription drug coverage
- If you enter the Part D “donut hole” in 2010, you will receive an automatic onetime, $250 rebate check. You do not need to apply for this benefit.
- These checks will begin mailing in mid-June, and will continue monthly throughout the year, based on when you reach the Part D coverage gap.
- This rebate does not apply to those already receiving extra help in paying for their Medicare prescription drug coverage.
