      2003 Federal Medicare Prescription Legislation.

    You would have to be living under a rock not to know that the most controversial piece of federal legislation to pass in quite some time is the Medicare prescription legislation passed on November 25, 2003. It is so complicated and lengthy that it has been difficult for most people to figure out what it contains and whether it truly helps Medicare recipients or constitutes more "corporate welfare."

    Please visit our Medicare and Medicaid news page to find more information about the 2003 Medicare legislation.
