No question those of us in good health can save a buck or two. But my wife and I care for a friend whose drugs costs are hundreds a month even with Part-D insurance. Some cancer drugs are thousands a month.


I did not sign up for partD because my supplement insurance (company provided) has drug benefits which were wonderful, with CareMark. This year, the plan went to CareMark's SilverScript - CVS Caremark Part D Services. So I guess I am now signed up for Part D? My generic drugs are $10 for 90 days. Non-generic are $75 for 90 days. Any drugs from the drug store are only for 30 days...generics and antibiotics $4-5. I have the PartD Medicare DoNut hole now too.
