Seniors see medicare and medicaid restrictions

Spread the love

Today, we interviewed several patients that had just discovered one of the new benefits of the Affordable care act.

A restriction that is going to create a lot of problems for many seniors who often are taking from 7 to 12 medications a month this is because our more mature seniors often have multiple health conditions.

Today though they had a surprise, medicaid and medicare now only pays for up to five prescriptions per month.

No exceptions.

Now think about Granny going up to get a heart medication and finding out that oops you have already filled five prescriptions this month, so sorry, you will have to pay full price and its only $385.00
