Gov. Jeb Bush is proposing the state pay for prescription drugs until the federal government can fix the computer glitch that's keeping some seniors from getting their medications.
The deadline to get assistance is February 15. Some seniors say the new Medicaid Part D program is more costly than the original plan.
Jean Dunnigan a senior citizen, says, "I'm on a low-income bracket and when I applied for it they told me being on a low income bracket you won't have to pay nothing for your medicine. Well, that's not true. I found out that's not true."
The federal government will reimburse states that buy medicine for senior citizens and disabled patients who are getting help from the new benefit program.
