    Prescription drug plans

    Am on Medicare and my plan has a drug plan but need advice as to a more favorable one. I now have Silver Script and it will not pay for my xiidra that I need badly

    Unfortunately, most plans either won't pay for the newer brand name drugs (only for the generics) or will pay for them, but at a much higher out-of-pocket to you.

    If you're a low-income senior, quite often there is help from the manufacturer on some of these drugs. If you qualify, you can get them for $10-20-50 a month.
    If we're ever in a situation where I am "the voice of reason", then we are in a very, very bad situation.

    Is there anything that can be substituted for it?
