service clears the mud with free online cost assessment from

Millions of elderly and disabled people face a bewildering range of options around Medicare Plan D, which starts on January 1, 2006. Besides having to decide on the most suitable drug plan, one must attempt to understand how the drug cost coverage of Plan D itself works: who pays for what, when and how much?

To help their patients understand Medicare Plan D a little better, DoctorSolve ( now offers a FREE online Medicare Cost Assessment ( In less than a minute, patients can answer a few simple questions, and determine if Medicare Plan D will actually save them money.

"Before registering for Medicare Plan D, it's important to assess one's personal situation," says Dr. Paul Zickler, of DoctorSolve, a Canadian online pharmacy service. "We want our patients to have a clear understanding of whether or not Plan D would be financially beneficial for them or if it makes more sense to continue to purchase medications through licensed international pharmacies.

"The beauty of the Medicare Cost Assessment is that it gives our patients a chance to look at Plan D from their own personal perspective. They know their monthly income, and what they spend on medications annually. All they have to do is plug in a few numbers, and the assessment does the rest. We don't ask for any identifying information, such as a name or address, and nothing is shared with government agencies, other persons or companies."

In actual fact, considering that patients can save between 40 and 50 percent with Canadian pharmacies, the only ones who would really benefit from Medicare Plan D are those who spend an extremely high amount on their medications. A recent article from stated "that drug costs would have to exceed $8,000 for an individual to save more with the standard Medicare drug plan." According to Tod Cooperman, M.D., President of, "a senior can easily exceed the savings of the standard Medicare drug plan by buying from Canadian or other licensed international pharmacies."

"It is our hope that our patients will look before they leap into a program that they may well regret for months down the road," states Zickler. "At least with our service, they know exactly what they're getting-safe, affordable meds with no premiums, no deductions, no hassles with HMOs, and no regrets!"
