Mass. passes Part D help

Massachusetts lawmakers passed a bill today that will help seniors and the disabled if their drugs are not covered under a new Medicare Part D plan. The bill, which now goes to the governor, offers a one-time, 30-day supply, which is meant as a safety net in case a drug is not on the plan or costs more. Not sure I've heard of a similar plan in any other state. Read the AP story here.
