Medicare Part D is getting so confusing and difficult to figure out, even the pharmacies are getting in to the education and assistance mode....if you can't find enough help on the web or on the CMS site, well here's 2 more places to look...gee this is almost like getting your taxes done anymore! I hope the information is helpful as the last thing one needs now is to have conflicting opinions from 2 different sources, but I imagine we might hear some of that as well. There's also the Medicare Bus that is making the rounds in different parts of the country to help.
Why not just make things simple to avoid all of this extra overhead! BD
