Seniors Being Reminded of Social Security’s Extra Help Prescription Drug Program

ILLINOIS (RFD) — If you are a senior and part of the Medicare Part D prescription drug program, Social Security is hoping you’ll consider joining a program to help you save money this year. Meghan Forristall with Social Security explains their Extra Help program assists with covering costs of the Part D coverage including premiums, co-pays and deductibles.

Forristal points out, you would not contact Social Security to enroll in Medicare Part D but you can visit the Social Security website or stop into your local office for more information on Extra Help.

Forristall says your local senior center might even have someone that could help you get enrolled in the program. You can visit socialsecurity.gov/extrahelp or stop into your local Social Security office for more information.
