Medicare prescription drug coverage is coming
With new prescription drug coverage, Medicare covers more than ever. Starting January 1, 2006, dependable coverage for prescription drugs will be available to all people with Medicare. To get covered, you join a Medicare drug plan and pay a monthly premium. You can sign up for a plan as early as November 15, 2005.
Joining a Medicare drug plan can help you save money and protect against high drug bills in the future. And since extra help is available for people with limited income and resources, people who qualify will have almost no drug expenses.
