MEDICARE PRESCRIPTION DRUG "EXTRA HELP"
Are you struggling to afford costs related to your Medicare prescription drug plan? If you are a Medicare beneficiary with limited income and assets, you may be eligible to receive “Extra Help,” also known as the Low Income Subsidy (LIS). Social Security offers Extra Help to reduce costs related to Medicare prescription drug plans such as monthly premiums, annual deductibles, and prescription co-payments. Contact your SHINE counselor to see if you qualify for Extra Help!
