I recently had a stroke and am on medications, but I don't have insurance to cover them.
I have Medicare Part D, so I am paying $15.
00/month, but I am still in the hole.
I can't afford $15.
00/month, so my question is are there any programs that would help me with my medications?

I have had medicare for 2 years, and my doctor switched me from my usual medication to one that made my condition worse and caused me to have episodes of passing out. I am unable to go back to work and am fighting a legal battle to receive social security disability. I am wondering if medicare would assist with the cost of a medication that will help me to remain healthy and be able to work. — Corinne ( )
I am currently on Social Security disability and have Medicare Part D.
The problem is that my doctor prescribed a medication that is retailing for $700.
00 for 4 months supply.
I have not been on the medication long enough to determine its effectiveness, but I am afraid I cannot afford to purchase it, even with my insurance.
What can I do?

I am on Medicare Part A & B and have a routine check up scheduled.
I have been on some medications since 1996.
My doctor has changed some of my medications and I have a new prescription for pain management.
I was told that I would have to pay $926.
00 for 90 days, so I have not filled the prescription.
I am concerned that I will not be able to get the medications.
I have an appointment on the 15th of April with my doctor, but I am not sure if this will be the day he gives me the new prescription.
I am worried that I will have to wait another week to get a new prescription.
So, my question is can I get the prescription filled before the 15th of April, or do I have to wait?

Im 45 years old and I have a daughter that is going to be 22. I have a problem with the fact that I did sign up for medicare. I did not sign up for medicare because the state of Virginia is giving me enough money. I want to just have my own money. I don't have to go through no state. I am on disability and I can't get any help with the pills that I take. It's very hard for me to get the amount of pills that I need. You have to take them. I am wondering if I can get any help with the drugs that I take. I don't work, I am disabled. — Nancy ( )
I am on Medicare and I can't afford my medications. I had to stop taking my sleep meds and now I have trouble sleeping. My doctor is not concerned about my sleep meds because he says I am not really taking them. I need help! — Carol B ( )
I am currently on Medicare Part D.
I have been taking a medication for many years and have been paying out of pocket.
I have recently been told my prescription Advantage plan has changed my prescription to a generic.
At first I was told I would have to pay for both the brand and generic of the medication.
I argued with the pharmacist and was told I needed to go to my doctor and ask them to write a prescription for the brand only.
I called my doctor's office and they said that they couldn't do anything for me and that I would have to pay $90 for the brand and $5 for the generic.
I don't believe this is right.
I feel I should be able to take the brand of the medication I have been taking for years without having to pay $100 a month.
Why can't I get the brand of the medication and pay the $5 generic copay?

I am on Medicaid and I am on the Part D for Medicare. I am in need of my medications. I have to pay $800. for a month of medication. I have to take 4 differents pills. I was under the impression that Medicaid would pay for my prescriptions. I can't afford to pay for my prescriptions. I have no choice but to not take my pills. I live in Kentucky. I am a retired woman and I am depending on the Medicaid Plan to pay for my prescriptions, but I don't think it is going to happen. — Betty W ( )
