Seniors are as satisfied with the Medicare drug program as they have been at any point in the past six years, according to an annual tracking poll (PDF).
A national survey of 2,363 seniors found 90% are satisfied with their Medicare Part D coverage, which matches the previous highest satisfaction level found by the annual survey conducted since 2006 by Medicare Today and KRC Research. Medicare Today is a nonprofit advocacy group that provides educational information to Medicare beneficiaries.
“It's very rare to get nine out of 10 people to agree on anything, but Medicare Part D has sustained that level of acceptance and popularity,” Mary Grealy, chairwoman of Medicare Today, said in a news release (PDF).
The lowest level of drug plan satisfaction previously found by the survey was 78% in 2006.
