Part D appears a failure for the middle class who get means tested out of real help. Most of the people in Part D when it began came from the welfare rolls that the GOPranos dragged in so they could claim that people got helped by this awful benefit. The people on welfare, God bless them had full coverage of drugs, and in Medicare Part D they had to pay some of their medication cost. The middle class who did not have any coverage but had Medicare part B who pay a monthly premium of 96 dollars and a yearly deductible of 130 dollars now had to pay another monthly premium of 35 dollars and a 275 yearly deductible just to get this failure of a benefit. With the late sign up penalty that the GOPranos put in this forced people to sign up even for a barebones plan and then the GOPranos could claim they had a high sign up percentage.
Medicare Part D appears about lies and big profits for Pharma and Insurance companies. Sorry but I strongly disagree with you.
Well, I disagree with you and have no idea where you are getting the $275 deductible on Part D.....I'd be thrilled to pay that much...my drugs now run me easily $3000 a year plus the premium for the drug plan. It is far from a failure and read my posting about the donut hole copay being cut in half. I, for one, would be without food and shelter if it were not for this "failed" plan you speak about.
