Medicare beneficiaries with limited income and resources may qualify for "Extra Help" to pay for Medicare Part D prescription drug costs. If you qualify, it can help reduce your drug costs, including monthly premiums, annual deductibles, and prescription copayments. Many people qualify and don't even know it. To qualify for Extra Help, income must be less than $16,335 a year (or $22,065 for married couples). Your resources must also be limited to $12,640 (or $25,260 for married couples). Your home, the land it stands on, your cars" burial plots, or personal possessions do not count toward the resource limit. COEDD Area Agency on Aging can help you apply for this benefit. It's easy and free to apply and can be completed over the phone with a COEDD staff person.
