Easy Way to Get Extra Help with Your Prescription Costs

Even though the AEP (Anuual Enrollment Period) is over, you can still get help with your prescription costs.  

In times like these, every dollar counts. Some people qualify for big savings on their Medicare prescription drug costs and don't even realize it. 

In fact, if you receive Medicare, you may be eligible for the Extra Help, which could save you about $4,000 per year on your monthly premiums, annual deductibles, and prescription co-payments.

Many People Quality and Don’t Know-It
To qualify for Extra Help, you must be receiving Medicare, have limited resources and income, and reside in one of the 50 states or the District of Columbia. 

To find out if you qualify, Social Security will need to know the value of your savings, investments, real estate (other than your home), and your income. We will also need information about you and your spouse, if you are married and living together.

Even if you were previously turned down for Extra Help due to income or resource levels, you should reapply. If you qualify, you'll get help paying for Medicare prescription drug coverage premiums, co-payments, and deductibles. To qualify, you must make less than $17,655 a year (or $23,895 for married couples). 

Even if your annual income is higher, you may still qualify for partial extra help. Your resources must also be limited to $13,640 (or $27,250 for married couples). Resources include bank accounts, stocks, and bonds, but not your house or car.

How to Apply for Extra Help
To get through the Extra Help process, call me at (773) 614-3201 and I'll help you with the process. It will take only a few minutes. 

Once you are determined to be qualified, you can choose either a Medicare prescription drug plan or a Medicare Advantage Plan for your savings.

Make sure you aren't missing out on these easy savings. The sooner you call, the sooner your savings begin.
