Our guest today is Dan Luce, a member of the American Pharmacy Association’s Board of Trustees, and the Manager of Pharmacy Affairs with the Walgreen Company. Medicare Part D. It’s a huge experiment that kicked off four weeks ago, and so far there have been plenty of speed bumps for millions of Americans. Walgreens pharmacy staff can provide a report showing the various plans and how each pays based on a person’s list of current medications and health conditions. Or, use the Medicare Part D interactive web site at www.medicare.gov. The government’s new prescription drug plan seems to have generated more questions than answers. Today we will do everything possible to clarify the process. Get tips on how to select a Medicare Part D plan based on your existing set of medications and health conditions. If you are a senior, or a caregiver, this is a program you can’t afford to miss.
