Voice For Health & Progress
  • Judy and her husband Tere are both active retirees who enjoy volunteering at their church through Senior Plus Meals on Wheels and participating in the church choir. Without Medicare Part D and Extra Help, addressing Judy’s medical issues would be a challenge.

    She suffered a stroke in 2012 and also has hypertension and high cholesterol. If it weren’t for Extra Help’s coverage through Medicare Part D, her out of pocket costs for prescriptions to treat her conditions would be too high. Judy and her family would have to make sacrifices in other areas of her life – such as birthday gifts for grandchildren and groceries – to pay for her medication.
