Low Income Subsidy Premium Summary

Low Income Subsidy Premium Summary

Medicare provides “Extra Help” to pay prescription drug costs for people who have limited income and resources. Resources include your savings and stocks, but not your home or car. If you qualify, you get help paying for any Medicare drug plan's monthly premium, yearly deductible and prescription copayments. In addition, your premium will generally be lower when you receive help. This Extra Help also counts toward your out-of-pocket costs.

People with limited income and resources may qualify for Extra Help. Some people automatically qualify for Extra Help and don't need to apply. Medicare mails a letter to people who automatically qualify for Extra Help.

If you think you may qualify for Extra Help, call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213, TTY users can call 1-800-325-0778. You may also be able to apply at your State Medicaid Office, call 1-800-926-2588, TTY users can call 1-208-332-7205. After you apply, you will get a letter letting you know if you qualify for Extra Help and what you need to do next.
