Why Review your Medicare Part D Prescription Plan?

This is the only time each year that all people with Medicare can join or change their Medicare prescription drug plan.  Even if you like your current Medicare drug plan, it is strongly recommended that you review your plan for the upcoming year.  You may be able to save time, money and frustration by choosing a plan with possibly lower premiums and fewer restrictions.
