If you have limited income or resources, you may qualify for Extra Help. Extra Help is a Medicare program to help those with limited income and resources pay their Medicare prescription drug costs, like premiums, deductibles, and coinsurance. If you have Extra Help there are supplemental Medicare plans available to you as well.

To apply for Extra Help call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213 or visit your state Medicaid office.
