Do I qualify for extra help?

Low income subsidy
If you qualify for extra help with your Medicare prescription drug plan costs, your premium and costs at the pharmacy will be lower. When you join one of our plans, Medicare will tell us how much extra help you are getting. Then we will let you know the amount you will pay.

How to inquire about Low Income Subsidy
If you are not getting this extra help, you can see if you qualify by calling Social Security at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY users should call 1-800-325-0778) or visit www.socialsecurity.gov (by clicking on this link, you will be directed to an external website) on the Web. See also Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Best Available Evidence Policy at CMS Best Available Evidence Policy (by clicking on this link, you will be directed to an external website).

In general, beneficiaries must use network pharmacies to access their prescription drug benefit, except in non-routine circumstances. Quantity limitations and restrictions may apply.
