Ms. Schuler talked about the new Medicare drug discount cards. She responded to viewer telephone calls, faxes, and electronic mail.

Several drug discount card sponsors talked via telephone about how their cards work, what the cards cost, savings that might be achieved using the cards, and what makes their cards different than others. The sponsors included a seniors' organization, a magazine publisher, a drugstore chain, an insurance company, and a pharmacy benefits manager. An Internet drug provider also participated in the discussion.

This was the first day for the new Medicare drug discount cards. The Bush administration claimed that the cards could save senior citizens about 17 percent on brand-name drugs and 30 percent on generic drugs. close
