AARP Polls Members re: Medicare Prescription Drug Plan

A new AARP poll indicates that only 46% of Americans age 61 and older think Medicare’s prescription drug plan will be a good thing for older Americans who have difficulty paying for their prescriptions. These older people are even less likely than baby boomers, not yet eligible to participate, to give it a favorable rating. Twenty-six percent of those age 42 and older in this survey think the program is bad for older Americans.

This is not surprising as more seniors fall into the donut hole and realize that the Plan is not all it was cracked up to be.

Open season begins November 15. If you are not pleased with your plan, Watch your mail for the Medicare & You handbook and for information from plans in your area. Complete the Rx Enrollment Check-up. You can also review and compare plans on cost and coverage at the Medicare website on the web. This site offers lots of helpful information for seniors. Decide what plan you want for 2007. If you’re satisfied with your current plan, there is no need to re-enroll.
