Chartpack: Seniors and the Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit
These charts highlight data from a poll on Seniors and the Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit, conducted jointly by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health between November 9 and 19, 2006. It included a nationally representative sample of 718 seniors, including 275 who reported being enrolled in a Medicare drug plan.
The questions about experiences under the Medicare drug benefit were part of a larger survey of 1,867 adults on the public’s health agenda for Congress and the presidential campaign. The survey’s margin of sampling error is plus or minus 4 percentage points for all seniors, and plus or minus 7 percentage points for seniors enrolled in the Medicare drug benefit.
