Q: How do I obtain a copy of the form, Application for Help with Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Costs?

A: If you wish to apply for Extra Help with Medicare prescription drug plan costs, the best way is to use our online application at www.socialsecurity.gov/i1020. You'll find it is convenient and easy to apply for Extra Help.

Keep in mind that this application does not enroll you in a Medicare prescription drug plan; you'll need to enroll directly with an approved Medicare prescription drug provider for coverage, which you can learn more about at www.medicare.gov or by calling 1-800-MEDICARE (TTY 1-877-486-2048).

If you are already enrolled, go to “www.socialsecurity.gov/i1020 to learn whether you're eligible for Extra Help — and to complete and submit the application.
