Medicare Prescription Drug Plans
On January 1, 2012
I will become eligible for Medicare, which includes choosing a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan
[I have been waiting 2 years, to become eligible for Medicare]

Now that I have the opportunity to finally have some type of Medical coverage, so that I can somewhat afford to go see a regular doctor (other than my MS Neurologist), I find out some "interesting news".

The medications I currently take for MS (including Rebif, Ampyra, etc.), are NOT covered on any Medicare Prescription Drug Plan?

Between Rebif and Ampyra, the out of pocket costs for a year of medicines in over $52,000
[The moneys my wife & I receive from Social Security Disability is only about $24,000, in a year]

Are any of you, in this position, and if so, what are you doing about it?

I'm very interested in this same issue -- I'll soon be on Medicare too!

From what I know so far, we're pretty much screwed if we need DMDs.
