Prescription Drug Coverage Gap Donut Hole Closing

On January 15, 2019, the Democratic Members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee voted to elect Congresswoman Eshoo as the first woman ever to serve as Chair of the Health Subcommittee.

Surly,

I signed up for Congresswoman Anna Eshoo's e-mail "Updates from Anna". She is well versed on the issue of Medicare costs and the Supplemental Plans issue, so it may be useful to you to sign up for her updates too.

I found this brief document at her web site with a link to an explanation of the prescription drug Coverage Gap (i.e. "Donut Hole"). I've never spent more than a pittance on prescription drugs so this has never impacted me in any way. I don't have Medicare Part D and have no plans to get it. If you are interessted in how that coverage gap is gradually closing, the document has graphs and some good info.

In regard to your search for a good quality Medicare Supplemental Plan, her web site has a "How Can Anna Help You?" section, which includes the topic of Medicare where you can write to her asking for info and/or advice.

Quote
Rep. Eshoo was born in New Britain, Connecticut, of Assyrian and Armenian heritage. She is the proud mother of two children, Karen and Paul.

Since she is the one that has identified many of these ("Medicare" ::) Part C) plans as "JUNK PLANS" (see Thom Hartmann video in the previous post on this thread), her office should have a list of the good, bad and the very ugly providers in your neck of the woods. This could save you a lot of time, money and more importantly, grief.
