Not all $200 cards for Medicare beneficiaries will go out before U.S. election

·1 min read

Sept 25 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump's administration aims to send out $200 cards to Medicare beneficiaries over the course of the next few months, but not all will be sent out prior to the elections, an official with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said on Friday.

The cards were announced by Trump on Thursday as a measure to help Medicare beneficiaries pay for prescription drugs. They will be sent out as soon as mechanically possible, the health official told reporters. (Reporting by Manas Mishra in Bengaluru Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
