Low-Income Subsidy (LIS) / Extra Help
If you’re on Medicare with a low income, you may qualify for a subsidy to help with the costs of healthcare and medications. Even those who don’t qualify for Medicaid in Florida and Texas may be eligible for a Medicare savings program or subsidy.
However, if you qualify for Medicaid, that automatically makes you eligible to receive Extra Help. In today’s post, Lacayo Group Insurance will answer common questions about Medicare and low-income subsidy benefits.
How Do You Get Extra Help?
If you have Medicare and get ANY of the following, you will get the Extra Help program:
- Full Medicaid coverage
- Help from your state Medicaid program paying your Medicare Part B premiums
- Supplemental Security Income (Ssi) benefits
Those who don’t qualify automatically can apply at any time.
