What options do I have for paying my Medicare drug plan premiums other than getting automatic deduction from my monthly social security benefit.

If you don't want to have the premiums deducted directly from your social security benefits, you have two options left. The first is setting up an auto pay from your bank account and the second is having them send you a bill each month where you mail it in. Having it taken directly from your benefits is the easiest way, though, because you never have to worry about it.

I don't recommend the mailing it in option. I knew someone who did this and the check got lost in the mail and it was a fiasco. I would recommend the auto deduction from your check or bank account.

Having premiums deducted from the check is probably safest.

I don't like having automatic payments being made from a bank account because you can't control when anyone tries to send through a payment request.

It is also too close to having your bank account garnished, IMHO.
