Medicare drug tool

It was unfortunate that Meg Haskell’s article regarding the Medicare Part D prescription drug program, “Time to decide,” (BDN, Nov. 11) failed to mention the powerful tool that Medicare makes available on its Web site for comparing the total costs of competing drug plans. Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Finder ( is an interactive tool that will allow you to enter the medications you are currently taking, as well as other personal preferences, and then provide you with a cost comparison of all the competing plans that are available in your area. I believe that it is the most effective tool available to assist consumers in finding their way through the Medicare Part D maze.
