According to a recent report from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Medicare’s new prescription drug benefit now covers 25 million Americans, with an average of 250,000 new enrollees being added each week.

HHS says there are benefits to enrolling in a Medicare drug plan at the beginning of any given month. According to HHS, signing up early in the month means enrollees will likely have their prescriptions filled promptly and allows them to get the best value out of their drug coverage from the first day it goes into effect.
More importantly, anyone who wants to take advantage of the benefit this year must sign up by May 15, 2006-the last day of 2006’s open enrollment period.
Seniors who have Medicare’s new prescription drug coverage are experiencing lower prices and are spending less on their medications than ever before. In order to maximize savings, seniors should compare the new Medicare options with their existing coverage to decide which option is best for them.
Eligible seniors and people with disabilities may want to speak with family members to help them understand the new benefit.
