Congressman Blunt backs Prescription D program
January 10, 2006
Bev Scroggins, community services director for the VantAge Point Area Agency on Aging in Joplin, catches the ear of Congressman Roy A. Blunt. Blunt appeared at the Family Pharmacy on 32nd and Indiana to support Medicare's Prescription D program. Suggesting that problems with administering the program occurred due to the large number of people who signed up at the last minute, Blunt assured everyone that in due time the challenges would be met. He believes that prices and competition will keep drug prices down but admits that participants might have to switch plans should their drug needs change. He did not address the issue that is stressing out some people, that of no longer finding coverage for their most expensive drugs or for drugs that were covered but now are considered experimental.
