Los Angeles Times

Nearly 70,000 Medicare patients in California saved $41 million on their prescription drugs during the first five months of this year under the federal healthcare law, new data show.

Touting the early benefits of the Affordable Care Act, Medicare officials said these patients have saved $585, on average, through a provision that is gradually phasing out the coverage gap known as the doughnut hole on Part D drug plans.
