Medicare "Extra Help" Drug Plan

Anyone who has Medicare can get Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage.

Some people with limited resources and income also may be able to get Extra Help
to pay for the costs—monthly premiums, annual deductibles, and prescription
co-payments—related to a Medicare prescription drug plan.

The Extra Help is estimated to be worth about $4,000 per
year.

To qualify for Extra Help:

  • Your resources (assets) must be limited to $13,300 for an individual or $26,580
    for a married couple living together. Resources include bank
    accounts, stocks and bonds, but not your home nor car.

  • Your annual income must be limited to $17,235 for an individual or $23,265 for
    a married couple living together.
