News from Social Security and Big Pharma

Well, Here we go. Due to the fact that our cost of living has not gone up, (yeah right),Social Security Recipients will not have a raise in the next 2-3 years. Well, that means with the increase in Medicare A,B,D, and the increase of co-pays on prescription meds, I have calculated that we will be down at least $ 150+ per month.

I have known this for the last 3 months or so and was really relying on the Patient Assistance Programs I have with 5 different company's. I have began the annual renewal program with the PAP's and they are changing their rules. One provider, Purdue, Has decided that the medication they have will push you into the do-nut hole by April, then they will send it to you free.

This is a disaster. With Big Pharma scaling back and no COLA for 2-3 years, This is a plan that has been coming.

More to Come, Read the news, not the Drive bys...
