Bush’s new prescription drug plan, a complex puzzle for the citizens
President Bush's prescription drug plan came in to effect on Jan 1st, but the governors of many states like those of Pennsylvania, have trouble dealing with the issue.

The plan has been under study for more than a year but members of Medicare came to know about it when they received a booklet declaring the new prescription drug plan. The plan was very difficult to understand which prescription drug services from the hold of the federal government to a partnership with the private insurance companies and the pharmaceutical industry.

The plan offered 30-50 separate plans for the prescription drug coverage of the Medicare insurance subscribers. The people were asked to take their current prescription drugs and choose a plan that covered them all.

But different pharmaceutical industries do not manufacture the same drugs. If the people were unable to find they were asked to take it back to their doctors for to prescribe a medication manufactured by their chosen plan that matched their medical needs.

The worst affected are the senior citizens when they found out that the plans keeps changing according to the change in the medical needs.

The members of Medicaid said that it was very difficult to make a plan to suit everybody's need. It also severely affected the chronically ill and disabled who did not understand the complexities of the President's prescription drug plan.

The important question they asked for was whether they are protected by the medical insurance if so then who covered their bills? The governor temporarily assured the 10,000 people that the local drug stores will be paid until the problem is solved.

The public are enraged with this new drug plan and want the federal government to have a universal health care system. When compared to other countries like Canada, England and France the Americans pay more than they do.

As it the time for election for the seats in the House of Representatives and a third of those in the U.S. Senate, it is better they change the plan or else the people will have to begin changing the guard and cleaning the political house.
