Forbes: Medicare Part D: A Health Care Success Story

Mary Grealy writes that among the pitfalls America has seen with Medicare, there may be one beacon of hope with Medicare Part D. Grealy says, the landmark legislation that created Part D was passed by Congress in 2003 with bipartisan support. It was the first major overhaul of Medicare in 35 years, and it offered a much-needed benefit to seniors struggling to pay for their prescriptions...Far from leaving seniors with limited options, Part D allows Medicare enrollees to choose the prescription plan that most closely aligns with their needs. In the Medicare Today survey, 80% of participants say their plan covers all the medicines their doctor prescribes. The numbers were even higher in New York and Florida.
