Why does Medicare NOT allow Pharmacuetical discounts
Prior to Medicare I had regular old insurance from my employer plan. I have been taking some pretty expensive meds for about 9 years now. I was able to take advantage of the drug company's copay assistance discounts which made my yearly costs about $300. Medicare DOES NOT allow these discounts, so now my annual costs have jumped to over $7,000. Is this how Medicare is supposed to be helping seniors?
do. You have the option during open enrollment each November to sign up for a part D prescription plan, and that should save you a considerable amount on your out of pocked expenses. Also if you are low enough income, you can get help paying your premiums, too.
