If you are on a Medicare drug plan and fall into the "doughnut hole," the law will provide a $250 rebate to help cover costs this year. Next year, there will be a 50-percent discount on drugs in the gap; then it will grow yearly until it's 70 percent in 2020. For those with adult children up to 26, the law permits coverage (later this year) under your group or family policy. And flexible spending accounts can be modified midyear to pay for it. But check: lower-cost options may be available. A federal insurance pool for high-risk individuals is slated to start later this year, but some state plans may offer better options at a lower price. Compare carefully before rushing in. Though the law includes an optional long-term-care insurance program, starting next year, the benefit caps are low.
