NOT ALL WE'VE BEEN TOLD
ABOUT THE PRESCRIPTION DRUG PLAN IS TRUE


In touting the addition of a long-awaited prescription drug plan to Medicare, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services have made many claims regarding the plan’s effectiveness and ease of use.  Certainly nobody denies that a well-planned prescription drug program is a fine addition to Medicare.  However CMS and their agents, in trying to convince beneficiaries and advocates of the effectiveness of this plan, have made statements that are inaccurate or simply untrue.

Information on the new prescription drug program is still changing rapidly.  Many sources may still be trying to convince beneficiaries and advocates that the program is sound, and many may simply not be up to date.  Beneficiaries and advocates should verify any information they receive, and be aware that even when verified, that information may not be accurate the next time they need it.
