I am a senior who has his part "D" and "NO" part
I would like you to consider the other side of
First, Soc. Sec. sent out a pamphlet in
June-July-2005. In that pamphlet it was explained to all who
received it that in order for this program to work, even for the
"dual-eligable" senior or disabled on medicare that 2 things
needed to be done.
1. Tear out the "Extra Help" application. Fill it
out and send it in with the enclosed envelope to Soc. Sec.
2. Contact your local senior center who will help
you enroll in a plan.
3. Go to your local pharmacy in January and begin
collecting your benefit.
It seems that about 99% of the seniors and
dual-eligible people did nothing more than take action on
instruction number 3.
I really believe that there is more fault here
than the one side being blamed for this problem.
It's a FREE country!! I got my Rights!! Yes, you
do but with FREEDOM comes responsibility for your actions which
I believe that you didn't bother to do or this problem would not
be out there today I am sure.
I would appreciate you taking the other side of
this issue on as well as the Governments side which is getting
all the blame here that is really not warranted with this mess
and the Government being blamed as the only one at fault here.
As far as the pharmacist's here. they deserve a
"purple heart" !! They took enough fire on this issue to last a
lifetime and were totally innocent.
I am retired and have been available every Monday
morning for the last 3 years at the local senior center with
computer online and available. I have done over 300 people since
June 2005. Guess what, I have had -0- complaints since Jan.1.
The monthly general meeting was Wed. Jan. 11th. I was met with
nothing but thank you's from all who attended.
Please show the issue from both sides.
