Pulled the Trigger

April 25th, 2006 at 07:47 pm

It's done. Finally signed my mom into a Medicare D plan this morning so that she'll be eligible starting May 1 and Medicare won't penalize her later for not taking a plan when it was first offered.

I have to admit I don't like it. Costs will be $2000/yr opposed to what she used to pay ($200/yr) before her employer decided to dump the prescription benefit for their retirees. Gone will be the patient assistance programs since most will not allow anyone with any kind of scrip coverage to benefit.

So what do I like? No more paperwork and running around (see earlier blog entry).

If this isn't the ultimate convenience expense, I don't know what is.

    It seems a number of companies and unions dropped the retirement prescrition benefits. I don't know if folks sve any money in the end. I don't think so. No paperwork is nice though.
