Medicare beneficiaries in California have saved nearly $952 million on prescription drugs because of discounts offered through the Affordable Care Act to those who fall into the Medicare Part D "doughnut hole" coverage gap, according to a CMS report, the Sacramento Business Journal reports.

“Grandmothering” law passes in California! The new law allows qualifying non-grandfathered small employer health plans to remain in effect until December 31, 2015 even if they don't meet certain requirements under the Affordable Care Act. This applies to employers with 50 or fewer employees.
