Tuesday is the first day seniors can enjoy discounted prescriptions with the new medicare drug card.
The new program is off to a slow start with only about 2 million seniors participating nationwide. However, the government is hoping word will spread and more seniors will sign up.
If you missed the free "Medicare Drug Card 101" workshop here in Lubbock last month, there is another one coming up on June 15th. This next workshop will be at the same place, the Byron Martin Advanced Technology Center at 32nd & Avenue Q, from 10am until Noon.
