Resources often count differently for benefits administered to Native Americans.
These templates are available for counselors to use to directly target outreach to American Indian, Native Alaskan and Hawaiian beneficiaries.
This fact sheet describes how low-income American Indians can get help paying for their Medicare and prescription drug costs through the Medicare Part D Low Income Subsidy (LIS/Extra Help) and the Medicare Savings Programs.
This document is being made available in Word format so that local counselors can tailor the contact information on the back of the sheet to refer Medicare beneficiaries to their local office for assistance.
All program information is up to date for 2021.
Because each state sets its own income and asset eligibility criteria for Medicare Savings Programs, use this chart to find these criteria and fill in the table for your state.
Separate fact sheets targeted at Native Alaskans and Hawaiians appear below.
