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 2017.
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.
(Note: The fact sheet may appear scrambled in the screen reader on this page. Actual formatting is fine; if you cannot download the template from this page or have questions about the MSP amounts in your state, please email the Center for Benefits Access.)
