Hello,I am not Bi-polar but my wife is. She has been on medication for it for years. We just got married 8 months ago. She has health coverage through Medicare. But, now that we are married they consider my income when considering her eligibility. She had been paying next to nothing for her meds, but now we have to pay deductible/co-pay of about
25%. We cannot afford this now. We both know she has to keep taking her meds, but the only way we can pay for them is with credit card. Obviously we will max our cards out real fast this way.
Does anybody know of any programs to either lower the cost of the meds or some kind of financial assistance to help pay for them?
She has called Medicare and they tell her to talk to Social Security and Social Security tells her to talk to Medicare.
I hope this all makes sence. if not please ask me to explain better.
Thanks for any help you have.
