| | Medicare Prescription Drug Plan
I wish to remind people that if you are under this plan, or if you know someone under this plan - Please make sure that the threshold amounts are properly applied.
Even though there is much information published about the threshold amounts and "donut hole" for the $2,250 and $3,600 amounts, I am concerned that many people may not be applying their "Total Monthly Prescription Costs".
For instance, one lady I spoke to is currently paying about $100/month for her monthly prescriptions. She was shocked when I told her that she would be paying the full costs of $400 for the last 3 months of the plan, and nearly that amount for 2 months (in the donut hole). She was simply looking at her $100/month payments and assuming whe would never reach the $2,250 amount.
And, I can understand her mis-interperting this matter - She is disabled, and is occupied with struggling through her day to day life.
So, please - If you know someone that may need help understanding this - Help them out.
