Trump’s $200 Medicare checks: When will you receive one?
Medicare beneficiaries may have to wait until after the election to receive their $ 200 checks from the U.S. government under a plan recently announced by President Trump.
Letters are expected to be sent to 39 million recipients next week, according to a Politico report on Thursday quoting five officials and draft documents.
However, the actual payments cannot be sent until after November 3rd, according to the publication.

The money is sent on cards that are similar to credit cards and could allegedly have a reference to the president. They would have to be used in pharmacies.
The money - around $ 8 billion - is expected to be drawn from the Medicare trust fund.
A CMS spokesperson did not immediately return the request from FOX Business to comment on the timeframe for the mailings.
