Did you know that you can apply for Extra Help with the government? Low Income Subsidy, also known as LIS or Extra Help, is a government program that offers help with the cost of Prescription Drug Plans. If your income does not exceed a certain income and asset qualifications, you may be eligible to get a LIS from the government to help pay for your prescription drugs and possibly even your Part A and Part B premiums!
These qualifications are set and assessed by the Social Security Administration. The SSA analyzes each case on an individual basis and determines if an individual or couple qualify for Extra Help.
*McCay and Associates Insurance is in no way responsible for the decision on whether someone qualifies for Extra Help or not. Only the Social Security Administration can make that determination.
