If you rely on Medicare, you know how confusing it can get just trying to buy your medicine. That's why on Saturday, some people could help explain all the paperwork rolled into town.
Most Americans are willing to spend any amount on their health.
Ann Schneider is facing the daunting tasking of figuring out her Medicare options.
“It's hugely confusing and the young woman who spoke to me about it certainly did make it much clearer,” said Schneider.
The “My Health, My Medicare” bus came to Charleston to help assist people like Ann with understanding Medicare. One big change Medicare has undergone is its prescription drug coverage. It became available to all Medicare recipients for the first time this year.
About 38 million seniors and people with disabilities are enrolled in the plan. The enrollment period for 2007 year began on November 15th and it ends on December 31st. The bus tour is helping people around the country when they need it the most.
