The Medicare Drug Benefit: Beneficiary Perspectives Just Before Implementation – Toplines

These toplines provide the complete results from a comprehensive survey of seniors on their understanding of and views toward the Medicare drug benefit. The survey of 802 seniors was conducted in late October 2005, prior to the start of the benefit’s open enrollment period, which runs from Nov. 15, 2005 to May 15, 2006.

The survey was conducted and analyzed by researchers at the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health. It is part of an ongoing effort to track seniors’ views on the Medicare prescription drug benefit, which has included three earlier comprehensive surveys about Medicare and five tracking polls which included questions about the benefit.
