CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire’s Senate has passed a bill for a prescription drug assistance program to help with out-of-pocket costs for low-income seniors.

The bill, passed Wednesday, aims to help seniors who have reached the gap in standard Medicare Part D coverage, also known as the “doughnut hole.”

It would establish a one-year pilot program to pay out-of-pocket prescription costs for eligible seniors.
