The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has put some long-term care residents on the backburner when it comes to enrollment for a new Medicare pharmacy discount card.

CMS announced it was delaying enrolling patients under the Long-Term Care Special Endorsement for the Community Care Rx Medicare discount card. The agency said it wanted to emphasize more general parts of the discount program first.
 
The Community Care Rx Medicare discount card began Monday. CCRx said it would notify its network pharmacies when they can start enrolling long-term care patients.
