At Commonwealth Care Alliance® (CCA), we believe that our members should have access to the care they need. But we know healthcare can be expensive—especially for those on a fixed income.

Extra Help is a government program for people who have a limited income. If you qualify for Extra Help, you could pay a lower copayment for your prescription drugs. Based on your income, you could save up to $5,000 a year on your prescriptions.1
