Medicare Assistance Can Help Those with Lower Incomes

Posted by Medicare Made Clear

There are a variety of Medicare assistance programs available for people with limited incomes, resources or assets. Medicaid, the Medicare Savings Program, the Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), Pharmaceutical Assistance Programs and the Extra Help program are available in most states. It’s a good idea to apply early if you think you might need help to make sure you have ample time to complete the application process.

A number of drug companies have Pharmaceutical Assistance Programs (PAPs) available to help people enrolled in Medicare Part D pay for prescription drugs.
