I have had medicare for years and part D since its inception. I made the mistake last year of buying an advatage insurance. I paid thru the nose for it and they made me pay 100% for meds so I could not get them most of the time.

Now that I am in assisted living, I also get medicaid and it pays for my meds and for what medicare doesnt.

It is so nice to have my meds for a change.

I am happy for you. It is awful when folks have to choose between food and meds.
Harlen…do you have a Hannaford up your way? If so, they have a great drug program. I am saving so much money there. It is better than my insurance programs prescription costs. Wal-Mart has a program too.

I agree and especially if ppl have children. The choices are more difficult. I respect everyone who gets stuck or lost in the system.
