Hi, my name is***** have been practicing SS LAW full time for 10+ years and look forward to assisting you.

There is a program, but it is not actually based on whether your meds are too much for you, but on whether you have very low income. It is called Extra Help. Please go here to see more on that:

If you are not poor enough for extra help, you own local medicaid office (state assistance) may also have a program on the state level for you.
