Comprehensive health care reform, while a large task, may be accomplished in small steps. The fact that Medicare plans will be changing in 2010 and drugs will cost less for seniors soon will mean reform of the health care system has begun. It’s certainly a step in the right direction. And, once the juggernaut of change begins, it usually winds up heading toward a whole new vista of change, well overdue to the American health care system.
Certainly lower drug prices will mean a big break for seniors on Medicare and who have Medigap coverage and Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage. Being a senior and living on a budget is difficult enough these days in a recession. Trying to budget Medicare and Medicare supplement insurance premiums is even more arduous.
