Your state Medicaid Office

Your Medicare Prescription Drug Plan costs, the amount of your premium and your drug costs at the pharmacy will be less if you qualify for extra assistance. Once you have enrolled in a plan, Medicare will tell us how much assistance you are receiving, and we will send you information on the amount that you will pay.

Remember: If you qualify for extra assistance, you still need to enroll in a plan with Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage to receive your prescription drug coverage.
