What is the Extra Help Program?
Extra Help is the name of a program through Medicare that provides assistance to low income individuals for their medication costs.
It helps pay the monthly premium, deductible, and your copays.
The Extra Help program essentially removes the dreaded Donut hole or Coverage gap for the qualified person.
This also allows an individual to change plans during the year at any time.
