Red Tape

Family caught in maze over Medicare plan Chicago Tribune

This piece by Chicago Tribune Columnist, Jon Yates, demonstrates the experience of millions of seniors registering for different Medicaid plans. These programs developed to help America's seniors only continues to be a point of frustration and worry for many who try to use these programs.

At least this son, who was handling his mother's prescription drug plan, was able to receive support from Blue Cross Blue Shield. Many patients on Medicare have a difficult time getting answers about their health care but must continue to work with the system because it is all they have.

I hope that while our politician's fight over plans to take care of America's citizens, that they have thought of ways to reduce the bureaucratic red tape.
