Do You Qualify for Medicare Part D Extra Help?

Medicare Part D is what assists you in paying for your prescription drugs and the Federal Government realizes that this process may be more expensive for some than others.  If you are someone who requires a lot of prescription drugs and Medicare Part D alone doesn’t seem to give you enough, it is time to consider the “Extra Help” program.  Qualification for Medicare Part D Extra Help is not easy for everyone, but you may have an automatic qualifier.

Here are three ways that you may qualify for Medicare Part D Extra Help.  You only have to be able to answer yes to one of these questions.

  • You have full Medicaid coverage.
  • You get help from your state Medicaid program paying your Part B premiums (belong to a Medicare Savings Program).
  • You get Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits

If you qualify based on one or more of the preceding points then you could get Medicare Part D Extra Help to give you a little more assistance.  Understand that there are other possible income requirements, but being a part of one of the above groups will likely include you in those requirements as well.
