Did that Mother's Day gift fall a little short this year? If your mom is on Medicare Part D, perhaps she wouldn't mind if you helped her save a couple thousand dollars this year.
Social Security offers a program to help save those on the Medicare Part D prescription drug plan roughly $4,000 a year and Jack Myers says that is a gift that can keep on giving.
For those already on Medicare Part A and B, you are already enrolled in Part D. Myers points outs there are some limits to the program.
To get more information on the Extra Help program, visit socialsecurity.gov/extrahelp or you can call 800-772-1213 and that application can be done over the phone.
Myers points out it reduces deductibles, co-pays, and premiums and help those prescription drug costs become more affordable.
