Seniors struggling to pay for their Medicare prescriptions have a number of options available to help them cover the cost of essential medication. Medicare itself offers Extra Help for patients on a low-income, details of which can be found on the website of the U.S. Social Security Administration.

There are also numerous patient assistance programs offered by non-profit organizations. Many drug manufacturers also offer assistance programs to ensure patients with financial issues still get the medication they require.
