The deadline for signing up for a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan is December 31st. The problem is, not everyone received the change of plan notices the drug plan insurance companies are required to send. UnitedHealth Group has been particularly slow.

No matter. The best way to compare plans is to go online to All the tools you’ll need are there, along with all the updates for 2007.

Don’t delay. Go to the Medicare site today and sign up for your plan.
