""I have an RX plan but today after picking up the Patches I went into the doughnut hole."

arndog= "if your on a part D plan have you tried to see if you qualify for extra help from Medicare ? Then your scrips will only be $2.50 for Gen and $5.00 for brand and there is NO Doughnut Hole to worry about."

How do I find this out?

I am on part D.

I'll call the local SS office and see if they answer the phone!
