This Republican bill to repeal and replace Obamacare could mean big changes for many Americans. The next step for this bill is to go through the Senate. Here are some things to know:
We know that there have been many questions and a lot of uncertainty surrounding our recent Presidential campaign in regard to where our candidates stood with certain issues. Healthcare has come up as a real hot button topic recently among the American people and so we decided to take a look at what our President Elect has said about the subject of Medicare and prescription drugs. While he has not said a lot in regard to either, there has been much speculation on what he wants to do. Here is what we have found for you.
Medicare approved prescription drug plans, also called Medicare Part D, but they are offered by private health insurance companies. If you do not get this coverage when you first become eligible, you may have to pay a late enrollment penalty. All plans have to conform to state and local insurance rules, but they are different because of the types of drugs covered and the amount of coverage. To give you even more choices, some insurers even offer tiered plans with different levels of coverage.
