Medicare Prescription Coverage - Beat The Deadline

The Medicare deadline for prescription drug coverage is May 15. If you are eligible for Medicare, and you don't already have a plan that's at least as good as good as the Medicare prescription plan then you need to sign up.

If you don't know which variation to get, go sign up for something. You can always change or upgrade coverage later, but if you don't get in by the deadline, there is a surcharge you'll pay for every month you delay -- and you'll have to keep paying that surcharge for as long as you live!

For more details and step-by-step instructions on how to get started, see this article.

Note they are selling a guidebook also -- you can get it if you like; I have no recommendation on it. But the article will explain more of what you need to know right now. So get going fast, if either you or a family member doesn't yet have the right kind of Medicare prescription coverage. Call your mom, call your dad, call your grandparents, and make sure they are signed up.
