Medicare's New Prescription Drug Coverage
« on: January 31, 2006, 10:07:04 AM »
In 2003, Congress approved the Medicare Modernization Act, which included new prescription drug coverage for Medicare beginning in January 2006, commonly referred to now as Medicare Part D or Medicare Rx.  Although this has appeared to be a voluntary program many Medicare beneficiaries will have to join a plan because their existing drug coverage may be cancelled or substantially changed.

Have you been able to select one of the new Medicare Prescription Drug Plans that will cover the drugs you take in time for the changes.  Let us know
how you were able to get through the process of selecting a new plan.
