Medicare Enrollees, Find the Best Drug Plan

Open Enrollment for Medicare Part D Drug Plans began three weeks ago, and you have until December 7th to find the best plan for you. We recommend comparing plans and reading reviews on our sister site MedicareDrugPlans.com.

Even if you're happy with your current plan, you should still compare it with others because plans change every year. Did you know that some plans are being discontinued, while others are being combined or merged? In either of those cases, you could end up being transferred to another plan, which may not be best for your specific needs.

If you've used a Medicare drug plan that you liked, hated, or felt mixed about, then please help your peers and rate your plan!

Public radio's The Leonard Lopate Show featured Ms. Rosenthal and discussed online pharmacies. Mr. Lopate asked her how consumers can avoid online prescription scams and dangerous online pharmacies.
