Hope is fading for prescription drug coverage

  1. Politicians are increasingly saying there is not enough time, money or political will to bring prescription drug subsidies to the nation's elderly this year.

    Unfortunately with George W. in the Whitehouse. I dont think you are going to see any relief for the elderly come about anytime in the near future.

    A bit of good news about meds

    I work in an Internal Medicine office and surprise surprise...
    the pharmaceutical companies are starting to implement some help for medicare covered patient with no prescription drug plan

    I have to admit I think the Pharm companies have been raping the system and hurting the patients with the high cost of meds
    Especially tough for those over 65 without prescription coverage or for anyone without RX coverage.

    More good news about the financial aspects for the patient~~~

    Some of these new programs a couple can make as much as $34,000 a year and still qualify

    So the government may not be Jumping on it .. but maybe there is some help arriving soon!!

    Remember Embrace each day as Life is a gift!~!
