Q about new Medicare drug section

fairegoldJune 22, 2005

Part D, I think. Anyway, Mother got the form in the mail, but she has Tricare, which is retired military, and it is a great drug plan.

My question is, if I know that she doesn't benefit from the other plan, and may not even qualify, do I still need to fill out the form anyway?

Thanks.

Helene...I don't know the answer to your question. But there are Medicare info phone numbers you can call with questions. One thing I discoered while trying to help my mother is that since HIPPA, you have to have a letter on file with Medicare specifying that you can discuss your Mom's account. If you guys do not have this on file, I would suggest writing it ASAP, while she can understand it and sign her name. Hope someone else has the answer you need. Derry
