Exactly and they are so limited on what they will cover. Only a certain ammount of office visits and prescriptions a year. My daughter takes 2 every day.

I'm not what you're meaning either. Can you explain a little further? I am on Medicare and have a Part D drug coverage, as well as a supplemental policy.
