They may not be getting balanced advice from private insurers because they are seen as potential clients, not as patients.
Vancouver, Canada (PRWEB) December 5, 2005 –
Many American seniors are feeling pressured to sign up for the new Medicare Prescription drug program as the enrolment period continues. But with a dizzying array of state plans, difficult qualification criteria and limited formularies most seniors are finding the program unnecessarily complex and unwieldy.
Many individuals are discovering that the actual savings under Medicare Part D may be minimal and fear they will shrink even further with rising premiums and formulary limitations. Therefore, it is advisable that consumers consider all of their options including purchasing their medications from a reputable Canadian pharmacy.
OneWorldRx (http://www.oneworldrx.com) provides a valuable resource for American consumers who struggle with the cost of their prescription drugs. The site gives consumers the ability to perform an instant personal analysis online that compares the bottom-line costs from Medicare versus a Canadian pharmacy. Patients can also call toll-free 1-888-533-9900 for a free consultation that will guide them through a series of choices.
“We have launched this calculator with the patient’s best interest in mind to educate them objectively about the complete range of available options to help them make an informed decision,” said Amber McBain, OneWorldRx Business Development Manager. “They may not be getting balanced advice from private insurers because they are seen as potential clients, not as patients.”
Examples of average annual savings from OneWorldRx.com vs. Medicare Part D* (see attached spreadsheet):
$ 1000 Retail = $ 282 savings vs. Medicare D
$ 3000 Retail = $ 156 savings vs. Medicare D
$ 5000 Retail = $ 956 savings vs. Medicare D
- includes premiums, deductible and co-pays, assumes a 40% average savings from Canada
Although the specific costs of private plans will vary, so too will their specific coverage of drugs. Seniors need to carefully review the plan’s drug coverage to ensure their prescriptions are included. Even if enrolled in Medicare Part D, there may be frequent times when a person will be forced to pay 100% of their drug costs. That is the ideal time to turn to Canada.
