Medicare Prescription Drug

In 2003, Congress signed into law the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act. This law includes a prescription drug benefit called Medicare Part D. This new law makes prescription drug coverage available to all Medicare beneficiaries beginning January 1, 2006.

If you are enrolled in Medi-Cal and have Medicare also, the new Medicare prescription drug benefit will replace most of the Medi-Cal prescription drugs that you currently receive beginning January 1, 2006.
