Medicare beneficiaries have saved $4.8 billion on prescription drugs since the law was enacted, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. She said  2.3 million people in the Medicare prescription drug coverage gap known as the "doughnut hole" have saved an average of $657. During the first nine months of 2012, over 20.7 million people with original Medicare got at least one preventive service at no cost to them.
