Making Sense of Medicare Plan D

It seems like everywhere you turn, there's an ad for the federal government's new prescription drug plan. And with the advertising blitz, comes many questions: What exactly is Medicare Plan D? Who qualifies for this plan? How much does it cost? Do I need to sign up for coverage? How do I sign up? What's the best option for me?

We'll go beyond the hype, and cut through the red tape to answer those concerns on the next Florida Matters.
