Huckabee Hopes Medicare Program Improves

February 9, 2006--Posted at 6:30 pm CST

LITTLE ROCK--Governor Huckabee said today he hopes problems with the Medicare drug program are coming to an end. Huckabee says he hopes the federal program straightens out its billing system before a deadline next week for the state to fill prescriptions.

Huckabee said Arkansas has already paid at least 5.5 million dollars to fill prescriptions that are being denied under the program. The state has said it will reimburse pharmacists for filling prescriptions until February 15th.

Huckabee spoke on National Public Radio this morning. The governor spoke in Washington, D-C, where he is for National Governors Association meetings. He spoke mostly about his weight loss and thoughts on health care programs.
