Believe it or not, the Pharmaceutical companies are actually doing something for Medicare enrollees. I know it is to head off the chance of the government insisting on reduction of prices, but shoot, it's going to help,
They have gotten together and formed a plan that greatly reduces the cost of a lot of drugs usually used by the Medicare Crowd. My pharmacist told me about it this morning. She is allerting all her Medicare customers.
When I say "reduces" I mean I will get on Rx that is costing me 118.00 for only 15.00. There are about 150 drugs covered. And your doctor may be willing to change you to one of them.
You have to meet certain requirments.
1. be on Medicare
2. have no other drug insurance, private or public
3. earn no more that 38,000 for a couple or 28,000 for a single. ( it's more if you live in Alaska or Hawaii)
Go to www.Together-Rx.com to enroll or get more information. Look at the complete list of drugs covered.
Or dial 1-800-865-7211 and ask for information on the Patient Assistance Program.
