If you or your loved one have limited income and resources, you could be eligible to get Extra Help with the costs related to a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan. You must be enrolled in a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan to get this Extra Help.
You qualify for Medicaid
Belong to a Medicare Savings Program
Get Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits
After you apply, Social Security will review your application and send you a letter to let you know if you qualify for Extra Help. And, if you do, you can choose a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan. If you do not select a plan, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will do it for you. The sooner you join a plan, the sooner you begin receiving benefits.
If you qualify for Extra Help but your plan has not been notified by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, you can show certain documents to your pharmacy and pay a reduced copay.
The Welvie surgery decision-support program helps you decide on, prepare for and recover from a surgical procedure. Plus, when you complete the first three steps of this program, you’ll receive a $25 Amazon.com gift card (one card per member per year).
