The recently transmitted email bulletin below makes reference to the fact that "...people with Medicare have saved over $6.1 million on prescription drugs...".

Health Care Law Saves Seniors over $6 Billion on Prescription Drugs
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has announced that more than 6.3 million people with Medicare have saved over $6.1 million on prescription drugs under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). As the ACA's third anniversary approaches, more and more people on Medicare are saving money on their prescription drugs. The ACA’s "donut hole" reduces the cost of Medicare prescription drug coverage (Part D).
