Lt. Governer Peter Kinder says it’s simple and easy… and it saves Medicare recipients money. Kinder is traveling the state urging those eligible to sign up for the state’s prescription drug program during open enrollment which began the first of this month. He hopes to encourage another 50-thousand residents to sign up for the program, which currently serves 160-thousand. Single residents 65 and older or single disabled residents 18 or older who are enrolled in Medicare and earn an income of 19-thousand-6-hundred are eligible. Residents who meet those requirements but are married are eligible if the gross household income is 26-thousand-4-hundred or less. Kinder will visit Kansas City, Joplin, Springfield and Cape Girardeau tomorrow.
