About Wyoming Perspectives: Prescription Drugs
May 15 marks the deadline for Medicare recipients to sign up for new prescription drug coverage. The drug plan, commonly called Medicare Part D, is the first major overhaul to the health coverage program in years, and many recipients stand to save substantial amounts of money on their prescriptions if they sign up. But some say Part D's many options are confusing, signing up is daunting, and, for some, the savings aren't big enough.
In this month's "Wyoming Perspectives: Prescription Drugs" airing Thursday, April 20 at 7 pm on Wyoming PBS, the state's leading experts on the prescription drug program join host Kristin Espeland to discuss this topic and answer viewer questions. Scheduled guests include state pharmacist Roxanne Homar, Renee Gamino Diaz from AARP and Janet Hackleman from the Wyoming Senior Health Insurance Information Program.
Viewers are encouraged to call in questions during the program at 800-495-9788, or fax questions to Wyoming PBS at 307-856-3893 prior to the program. Questions may also be e-mailed to Wyoming PBS's general manager at: email@example.com.
