White House: Affordable Care Act will close N.J.’s Medicare ‘donut hole’ coverage gap by 2020

White House: Affordable Care Act will close N.J.’s Medicare ‘donut hole’ coverage gap by 2020

Says that New Jerseyans are benefiting greatly from legislation

With the first anniversary of the federal Affordable Care Act on Wednesday, the Obama administration Monday issued a report highlighting what it sees as the benefits of health legislation for New Jerseyans.

Information provided by the White House states that more than 132,578 New Jerseyans who hit the Medicare prescription drug coverage gap known as the “donut hole” received $250 tax-free rebates, and will receive a 50% discount on brand-name prescription drugs when they hit the donut hole this year. By 2020, the law will close the donut hole completely. And the 1.2 million residents who have Medicare can now receive free preventive services – like mammograms and colonoscopies – as well as a free annual wellness visit to their doctor.
