The New Medicare Drug Benefit – Our Advice

We urge everyone with Part D coverage to track how their plan works for them in 2007. Part D is still new – for you, the government, and the dozens of insurers offering coverage. Lessons will be learned and changes made in the future. You can be part of that process if you keep tabs on things like: (a) what you spend on drugs out-of-pocket, (b) drugs not covered by your plan, (c) changes in the cost of your medicines, (d) how well your plan explains your coverage, and addresses your concerns, (e) how easy it is to reach people at your plan if you need help.
