Hi. My name's Lane.

...

First, here a form that your Doctor can sign, to help with Uceris costs:

...

https://www.uceris.com/Portals/152/assets/pdf/ulcerative-colitis-uc-patient-information-form.pdf

...

Then what you're hearing about is actually provided through Medicare (administered by Social Security)

...

If you meet certain income and resource limits, you may qualify for Extra Help from Medicare to pay the costs of Medicare prescription drug coverage.

...

In 2017, you may qualify if you have up to $18,090 in yearly income ($24,360 for a married couple) and up to $13,820 in resources ($27,600 for a married couple).

...

Here's where you can apply for "extra help" online (scroll down to the bottom of the page to start the application:
