I’m taking turmeric 450mg once daily. I can’t tell if it’s making a difference. If you’re taking turmeric, what dose do you find helpful?

Medicare Plan D And/or Medicare Supplement Plan G For Biologic DMARDS With Traditional Medicare?

I will be starting Medicare in January 2023 and need to know if part D will cover biologic DMARDS in case my RA worsens and my rheumatologist prescribes it for me or if I will need a Plan G Medigap plan to go with it. Anyone taking a biologic currently that has traditional Medicare? I'm not going with a Medicare Advantage plan.
