On Oct. 28, the Sun published an Answer Man column detailing the Florida Blue insurance sticker shock suffered by Jim Brogan of Port Charlotte when he found that his Medicare Part D supplemental drug policy rates would jump from less than $200 in 2013 to almost $4,000 in 2014.
Brogan, 79, told the AM that he and his wife have 16 prescriptions, 14 of which were free this year, and the other two costing a total of $192. The problem, he said, was that the 16 drugs, classified at either Tier 1 or Tier 2 by Blue — thus all free or at minimal cost — were elevated to Tier 4 for 2014.
