Drug Costs Can Be Reduced

Cheyenne, Wy – Some premiums for Medicare prescription drug plans are increasing by as much as 100 percent in the coming year but one official says the increases can be fixed. Loisjean Hallberg with the Wyoming Senior Health Insurance Information Program says some plans increased to 110 dollars a month. But she says an expert can help you find a better plan and a much lower cost. Hallberg adds that there are thousands of Wyoming Seniors who could be receiving prescriptions for as little as two dollars each, because they qualify for a low income version of the prescription plan. Hallberg says if seniors want to make changes in their prescription drug plan, the deadline is December 31st.
