Medicare Deadline Monday

By  | 

There are only a few days left for seniors to sign up for the new Medicare prescription program. The sign up deadline is this Monday May 15. A poll shows that close to half of seniors surveyed aren't convinced the plan is a good one.

When asked if the Medicare prescription program was working forty-seven percent responded no. Thirty-percent said yes. President Bush finished up a tour earlier this week urging seniors to join the thirty one million people he says have already subscribed to the plan. Seniors can still sign up past the deadline; they will just pay more money.
