Drug Discount Card Simplified

While some people are still having some difficulty figuring out how to get one of the new discount cards, employees with Medicare Services say it's as easy as using your phone.

Linda Horsch of Medicare Services said, "the first thing people need to know is they can call 1-800-Medicare, and the Medicare operators will walk them through the program to see if they qualify for a card, qualify for the additional $600 credit which is available for certain eligibility guidelines of income."

Horsch says it is a fairly easy process, and the operator can walk you through everything. She says all you have to do is call.
