What does help in an odd way is that if the drug is name brand, you pay roughly 50% and the pharm company has a deal worked out with Medicare to cover about 50%. Ex. the drug is $400 per month - in the donut hole, you pay about $200 out of pocket (OOP). The bulk of the other $200 is covered by the drug company. But in terms of meeting the OOP to get you out of the donut hole ( in the neighborhood of about $4750 per year), the $200 you paid counts and so does the $200 the drug company paid. Last year, we paid about $2500 in copays and the drug company portion took care of the rest of the roughly $4750 needed to get out of the donut hole and into the next stage of coverage.

They do, but you have to be very poor to get it. Talk to the Pharmacist, they know a LOT about help for prescriptions.

One suggestion is to check the drug manufacturer's website to see if the company has a discount program to help with the cost for seniors.
