ADAP & Medicare Drug Plan
Jan 12, 2004

I know that the new Medicare Drug plan will eliminate wrap around coverage through Medicaid. How will this affect people who are on ADAP/Medicare/Med-cal(Medicaid). In California ADAP cover drugs up to my share of cost & then Medi-Cal pays the rest. Will I now have to pay into the Medicare drug program or will ADAP now pay it all?

Response from Ms. Franzoi

The new Medicare prescription drug plan won't be effective until 2006. The details have yet to be worked out. Therefore, it is difficult to answer your question at this tiome.

very expensive meds
Nancy: you are amazing!
