ElderLawAnswers Adds Medicare Drug Benefit Checklist
- March 25th, 2013
Starting October 1, 2005, companies began marketing Medicare drug plans to recipients who wish to sign up for the new Medicare drug benefit, which takes effect January 1, 2006. Medicare beneficiaries will have many plan choices, but choosing the right plan requires evaluating more factors than just the cost of the monthly premium.
