Selected Findings on Knowledge and Understanding of the New Medicare Rx Drug Program — January/February 2004 Kaiser Health Poll Report Survey
Seniors are confused about the Medicare prescription drug law. Selected findings from the January/February 2004 Kaiser Health Poll Report survey show that while about two-thirds of seniors report following the debate closely, just 15% say they understand the new prescription drug law very well and seven in 10 don’t know that it passed and was signed into law.
