The plan to lower U.S. prescription drug costs.

A chemotherapy drug given by infusion may currently be covered under Medicare Part B. The proposed plan would shift coverage to Part D. If implemented as currently described, some might end up paying more - perhaps a lot more.

Thanks for sharing this. I am going on medicare in a few months and have been trying to figure out what kind of Part D to obtain. I don't currently need it since my drugs are covered on Plan B but it seems that could change so I am working to figure out how comprehensive a part D to get. The articles reinforce for me the importance of this decision.
