Understanding the Affordable Care Act – Medicare D [infographic]

July 25, 2013 — 2 Comments

Beginning Jan. 1, 2014 the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will come into full effect.  While parts of the law are already in place, 2014 will bring in a whole new set of changes, including dozens of tax provisions, that can be difficult to understand.  Thanks to the folks at Block Talk, we’re posting a series of infographics that make it easier to understand the 1,000-plus page ACA.

Below you’ll find a graphic summary of changes to Medicare D, the government’s prescription drug benefit program.  This infographic explains the coverage gap closure, which became effective in 2011:

    Great visualization of the ACA’s impact on Medicare Part D. On a related note, I covered a final rule from HHS the other day on the 340B drug discount program: http://bit.ly/16ePaat. Let me know what you think of it.
