New Survey Assesses Senior’s Views of Medicare Drug Law

Seniors are most likely to say they would turn to their doctor, pharmacist, or the Medicare program, for help in making decisions about the new Medicare drug benefit set to begin Jan. 1, 2006, according to new data from the Kaiser Health Poll Report tracking survey. The tracking survey also provides updated tracking data on seniors’ knowledge and views of the new Medicare law.

Foundation President Drew E. Altman, Ph.D., released the data on Jan. 27, 2005, as part of a speech at the National Academy of Social Insurance’s (NASI) National Conference.
