+13% Part D increase for 2013
The price of my Medicare Part D prescription drug plan from United Health Care starting in January, 2014, has an effective increase of 13%. My actual cost will actually be even more as the “plan costs” passed on from the pharmaceutical company charges also increase. The monthly plan charge has increased 6%; the one-month quantity has decreased from 31 days to 30, +3%; and I reach the full pay tier $120 dollars sooner, +4%.
