Some help for the Medicare donut hole on the way.
- on June 14, 2010
It looks like the first round of checks were mailed out, beginning June 10th. If you have hit that donut hole in your prescription drug plan, then watch your mailbox for the check. According to this article on CNNMoney.com there is a potential of scams, but seniors should be aware that the checks will be mailed automatically, there are no forms to fill out. Do not give your social security numbers or Medicare numbers to individuals claiming to help you get your check.
