"Fewer Medicare prescription drug plan enrollees are falling into a coverage gap known as the doughnut hole, in which they bear the full cost of their prescriptions, according to a study from the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. A total of 19 percent of Medicare Part D beneficiaries who did not receive low-income subsidies hit that gap in 2009, the latest year for which figures are available. That compares with 26 percent in 2007." (09/08/11)
