Drug Assistance Programs

Explore these options to help save on prescription drug costs.

There are a number of prescription drug assistance programs in each state of the U.S. Some of these programs, such as the Extra Help program, are designed to support Medicare beneficiaries, while some other available resources can also support state residents who are not enrolled in Medicare.

Click on your state in the map below to learn more about drug assistance programs in your area.

Seniors and Prescription Drug Costs

On average, people age 65 and older spend over three percent of their income on prescription drugs. For the 43 percent of single Social Security recipients who rely on their Social Security check for 90 percent or more of their income, lofty drug prices can be detrimental to their economic well-being.

Medicare Part D helps cover some prescription drugs for those enrolled in Medicare, but recipients must pay a monthly premium for Part D coverage (in addition to their Part B or Part C premium).

To help those with limited incomes pay for the Part D premium and other costs, the Social Security Administration offers the Extra Help program. This program helps pay for some Medicare Part D costs, such as monthly premiums, annual deductibles and copayments.

Qualifying for Extra Help

To qualify for Extra Help, your annual income must be below $18,090 if you’re single or below $24,360 if you’re married. Additionally, your combined savings, investments and real estate must be below $13,820 if you’re single or below $27,600 if you’re married.

You may automatically qualify for Extra Help if you have Medicare and meet any of the following criteria:

• You have full Medicaid coverage
• You get help from your state Medicaid program paying your Medicare Part B premiums
• You get Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits

It is important to note, however, that the Extra Help program is not available in every state. The states that offer Extra Help are:

• Delaware
• Indiana
• Massachusetts
• Maryland
• Maine
• Missouri
• Montana
• New Jersey
• New Mexico
• Nevada
• New York
• Pennsylvania
• Rhode Island
• Vermont
• Wisconsin

Fortunately, many states that do not offer Extra Help offer other programs to help residents afford their prescription medications. Find your state below to see the prescription assistance programs it offers.
