A study says seniors in seven of the 10 most popular Medicare prescription drug plans will be hit with double-digit premium hikes next year if they don’t shop for a better deal. The report by Avalere Health is a reality check against the Obama’s administration’s upbeat pronouncements. Back in August 2012, officials had announced that the average premium for basic prescription drug coverage would stay the same in 2013, at $30 a month. (AP Photo/Danny Johnston, File)
