medicare drug discount cards
Apr 17, 2004

I am medicare eligible due to disability related to my HIV/HBV status. My drug expenses are over $1000/month. Are there any drug companies who plan to offer discounts on their expensive medications (epivir, ziagen and viread in particular) through the new Medicare drug cards which will be available next month?

Response from Ms. Franzoi

The new Medicare discount card should be available in June of this year. Since you have Medicare, you will be receiving information from the SSA re the new card and this should provide you with answers to these questions. At this time, I do not have any information on what the discounts will be or who will participate.

can my insurance company deny liver transplant(due to cirrhosis)?
