Subject: Why the Part D Rx plan jigsaw puzzle? Date: 11/13/2007 7:49 AM

I just read the article(s) in my newest AARP newsletter about the need for people to again shop around and probably CHANGE their Part D Rx plans for 2008, because many things will change -- drugs covered, costs, etc.

What a farce this is!

We have no Rx plan, as I've posted before, because it makes no sense for us to do so and would waste about $600/year over and above what we pay for prescriptions now.

A lot of elderly people are very elderly and rather hapless and helpless, for one reason or another. For them to have to scurry around, wading through a lot of mumbo jumbo, just to have coverage they already signed up for once, is terrible. Why on earth does our government tolerate and even cause this situation to exist!?

Shame on our government. And shame on all the companies who participate in this jigsaw puzzle.

Why not have ONE basic plan? Oh -- free enterprise, right? Spare me.

Good thing we at least have a common approach to stop lights. I hope no one decides that green may mean STOP in some places and red may mean GO!
