People with limited incomes may qualify for Extra Help to pay for their prescription drug costs. If you qualify, Medicare could pay for up to 75 percent or more of your drug costs including including monthly prescription drug premiums, annual deductibles and co-insurance. Additionally, those who qualify will not be subject to the coverage gap or a late enrollment penalty. Many people are eligible for these savings and don’t even know it.

- 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227 toll-free; TTY/TDD users call 1-877-486-2048), 24 hours a day/7 days a week
