Default Medicare Part D (rant!)

I just lost a fight with my prescription plan over a pill my doctor and I think I need twice a day. They refuse to cover it. (It costs $260 a month without coverage.) That was the third insult from this insurer, so I am looking for a new provider for 2007.

But the companies have all changed the rules for next year. I had opted for Level J (which included coverage of the donut hole). Next year, only generic drugs will be covered during that period. I take some very expensive drugs, so that is discouraging.

It appears that AARP (United Health Care) offers about the best deal — they do not list any of my drugs as needing prior authorization, though a few have quantity limits (not sure how draconian those are).

Has anyone else here worked out a strategy for dealing with this travesty of a drug plan?
