    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    Hey, thanks for the information. I was hoping to hear from people who've been through the process and would say, "Oh, it's a snap!" But, of course, that's just a fantasy! It's pretty tedious. You go on Medicare's website, punch in all the medicine your mom or dad need, and then it spits out dozens of companies that participate in the prescription program (in our case, over 80 companies). There's no price comparison so it involves phoning up lots of companies, discussing cost etc. It's not hard work--just tedious and time consuming. I am going to have to take a vacation day from work and just spend the whole day going through this and picking the plan that seems best suited for them. Thanks for your input! I appreciate it.

    Wonder if AARP could help you out?

    Hey,Lois, check with your local Office of the Aging. When my parents needed to pick a plan they met with someone there and had it all explained and then picked out the plan and had help filling out the forms.
    Finally, after 22 years I got my honeymoon. Niagara Falls in February. Whats next the beach in December?

    I did find out that the yearly enrollment period (for the Plan D program) is from Nov. 15 to Dec. 31, and they said the plans now will most likely change. So it's best to start looking at what the new plans are offering around mid-October. The monthly premiums also vary between $17 to $110 each month, so I have an idea of how much this will cost my parents, too. I'm making headway folks! Thanks again.

    Lois Lane Try the council on aging they'll sit with you and your parents and discuss their options with you, and they'll explain it to you in ENGLISH not insurance speak.

    Started tutoring elementary school students in reading this week! I've been looking forward to this. They definitely play as many mind games with you as you let them get away with! I've quickly discovered that they not only need help with reading, but they also need positive reinforcement on a social level. Actually, most of them are good readers, so far. Only 30 minutes/session!

    I'm now starting to think about tutoring adults, which I think would be really cool! Volunteer work rocks!!

    I totally agree! My hat is off to you. What a great thing you are doing. I hope you inspire others to do great things. (my husband used to tutor adults in reading and loved it. He doesn't have the time now anymore unfortunately.)

    I love to volunteer and I LOVE volunteers. I just think that as socially responsible citizens of this planet, that it is our responsibility to give to others in any way possible when we can and volunteering is such a great way to give. You rock!!!
