Rhode Islanders benefited from ‘hole’ fix

Posted:

CRANSTON – Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse and Lt. Gov. Elizabeth H. Roberts championed the positive results of the Affordable Care Act during a recent visit with local seniors. According to new data, 13,834 Rhode Island seniors saved more than $8 million through prescription drug discounts in 2012.

“Seniors should never have to choose between putting food on the table and paying for the medication they need to stay healthy,” Whitehouse said. “Fixing the doughnut hole was one of my top priorities when I was elected to the Senate, so I’m proud to see the Affordable Care Act saving Rhode Island seniors millions of dollars every year.”
