Do you have trouble paying for your Medicare premiums, co-pays or prescriptions?
The Benefit Specialists at the Aging & Disability Resource Center can confidentially evaluate your potential eligibility using program income and asset guidelines. Note that these guidelines change each year, so if you didn't qualify in the past you may be eligible now.
Assets do not include your home, vehicle, possessions or burial allowance of $1,500. Assests include such things as checking, savings, CD's IRA, SSI, VA, pension, earned or unearned income, RRI annuities, stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.
There are two available programs: Medicare Savings Program (MSP) can help pay for Medicare Part A and B premiums, and possibly the co-insurance and deductibles associated with Medicare; Low Income Subsidy (LIS) for Prescription Drugs can help reduce the cost of prescription drugs.
