Medicare for the Clueless

August 7, 2010

As much as it saddens me to acknowledge that my mother is growing older, this is something I have to prepare for. One of the things I’ve been doing recently is trying to learn something about Medicare because I think Mom will have to apply for this kind of coverage soon. I’ve tried navigating some websites, but I just don’t understand much of what I read — plus, there seems to be some conflicting information out there.

I think my best bet at this point would be to buy a book like Medicare for the Clueless and hope it explains all the important info I need to know about the Medicare part D plan. This is critical right now because Mom is paying about $250 out-of-pocket for prescriptions, which is hard for someone on a limited income.

I really hope I can sort this out and get my mom the kind of coverage she’s entitled to.
