Saturday, December 31, 2005

WASHINGTON - The Coalition to Advance Prescription Drug Education (CARxE) announced in December that the CARxE Benefit Gateway is now available at www.care.org. The site allows seniors to compare benefits and costs available in their local area. By providing specific information, content can be personalized for individual users. With Medicare Part D looming on the horizon, many seniors and their families are finding it difficult to decipher the various plans and some specialty pharmacy providers are concerned beneficiaries will have poor understanding of what's available to them and at what cost.Volunteers are available to help seniors with their enrollment decisions.
