New Medicare Website for Med Programs

Medicare has unveiled its long-promised Internet tool to let beneficiaries compare how much their medications will cost under the various drug-insurance plans that start next year. But people who aren't Internet-savvy may need help sorting through the information on the site.

Medicare officials yesterday expanded one of its Web features, called the prescription-drug plan finder, to help beneficiaries of the federal health program pick one of the drug-plan options available where they live. Dozens of insurers are offering drug-insurance plans, and the Web site is supposed to narrow the field by letting people enter their prescription medicines and compare how much they would spend for monthly premiums, annual deductibles and to fill prescriptions.

We hope you find the site of value.
