Need Help with Medicare Cost – Extra Help May be Available

Medicare recipients with limited income and assets may qualify for money-saving programs called Extra Help and Medicare Savings Program.  Through these programs additional help may be available to assist with the cost of premiums, coverage gaps, co-pays and annual deductibles. You may also qualify for other forms of financial assistance such as food assistance, rental assistance or a form of Medicaid.
