Extra Help with Medicare Drug Costs

Apparently, many people who are eligible for Extra Help from Medicare Part D do not enroll in it. This study says that about 2 million people are eligible but not taking advantage of this benefit.

Seniors and the disabled are eligible for the subsidy if their income is less than $16,245 a year for individuals and $21,855 for married couples living together. The value of their stocks, bonds and bank accounts can’t exceed $12,510 for individuals and $25,010 for married couples. The income definition doesn’t include the value of homes or automobiles.

So if this includes you, apply today. Jennifer
