Qualifying senior citizens can receive up to 25 percent off their total cost of healthcare and prescription drugs thanks to the Relay for Health bill. It was made law in 2003 by former President George W. Bush.
The Department of Aging says that the county is the first in Southeastern North Carolina to take advantage of the Relay for Health bill. SOURCE
I have a question, why did it take so long? The bill was signed into law in 2003 by President Bush and its now 2010! I guess Obama will try and take credit for this help for the senior citizens!
