help needed to pay for prescriptions.
my necessary prescriptions this month are going to cost $226.63 because i made a mistake and allowed the “extra help” that social security offers to help pay for prescriptions, since medicare prescription plans do not cover much of anything, to lapse because i have been very ill, and i have not been able to get a caseworker to help with my paperwork - none of them are taking new clients.
there’s another prescription that i can do without for a bit because i have some extra saved, that would add $44.36 to that total. even if i did not have some extra saved, it really isn’t as crucial as the two which cost the aforementioned $226.
i filed a new application for the extra help this morning, but i am out of those meds, and processing for those things tends to take somewhere in the neighbourhood of a month.
in case you don’t know me: i am a disabled adult and i receive social security. after i pay my rent, bills, and utilities each month, i have about $50 left each month to try to cover my prescriptions, transportation, incidentals, household supplies like soap and toilet paper, etc. it is always very tight and cut extremely close, and i can never save money for emergencies. i am not able to do freelance work on the side anymore because i am too ill.
please do not feel bad if you can’t help - i know money is tight for everyone, and a lot of people have been giving their spare money to others in need already. reblogging often seems to be very helpful for other people when they’ve needed help, because more people see it, if that’s something you’re comfortable with.
