A representative of Missouri doctors says the word needs to get out that Medicare is changing prescription drug coverage, because too many Medicare and Medicaid recipients aren’t aware of the pending changes. Doctor Neal LaPointe of Jefferson City with the Missouri Association of Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons says though Medicare will offer a range of plans from which to choose, choice might create more problems that it solves. Medicare plans to end its prescription drug coverage at it is offered now by the end of the year. Medicaid will no longer offer prescription drug coverage. LaPointe says Medicare and Medicaid recipients need to keep all the mail they are getting from the programs and have someone explain it to them if they don’t understand it.
