The Trump administration expects to send $200 prescription drug discount cards to seniors today. The program will cost at least $6.6 billion. The cards encountered objections within the Trump administration. However, Politico reported that an industry advisory panel for IRS abruptly dropped its opposition to the drug cards.
“Nobody has seen this before. These cards are incredible,” Trump said.
Trump has said 33 million Medicare beneficiaries could receive the benefit, which can be used for prescription drug co-payments.
