Medicare Drug Plans Might Rest With Three Major Insurance Companies
The Medicare drug program is on its last lap of seeking enrollment from drug companies, and results so far, show an inclination of the plans to rest with three major insurance players.

United Health Group seems to be the ace in the heap, with AARP as its official endorsers and a financial agreement with them to support the company. AARP is s a solid supporter for the drug program by Medicare.

80 companies have been in the fray with more than 1,400 Medicare prescription drug plans across the nation, though the key companies that will actually go with the Medicare Drug program appear to be the United Health Group, Humana and Well Point who have garnered nearly 52% of the total drug benefit enrollment.
