The U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging has taken its operations on the road – to St. Louis – to get some input from Missouri senior citizens on federal lawmakers’ efforts to strengthen Medicare and pass a prescription drug benefit plan. Senator Jim Talent, a member of the Committee, says we could see that federal drug bill passed by Congress this Fall. Missouri has its SeniorRX Program, which allows senior citizens to enroll in a plan lowering prices on prescription drugs. But state officials have already said that program will cease to exist in its current form once a federal program comes into being.
