Nearly three years after concerns were first voiced, are we still perplexed over the entire medicare prescription situation? Well, here we go again! 33 million Americans are part of Medicare's prescription drug benefit, and most report good results. But beginning in two weeks, the newly eligible can sign up, and there are issues you might have to face. In fact, some federal officials say you're being confused - on purpose! We'll talk about it, and have some help for you, Wednesday morning at nine on The Sound of Ideas.
