Question: Who can get Extra Help with Medicare prescription drug coverage?

Answer: If you receive Medicare and have limited income and resources, you may be eligible for Extra Help, Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage, to pay for costs (monthly premiums, annual deductibles and prescription co-payments) related to a Medicare prescription drug plan.

To qualify for Extra Help, you must reside in one of the 50 states or the District of Columbia. Your resources must be limited to $13,300 for an individual or $26,580 for a married couple living together.

Resources include such things as bank accounts, stocks and bonds. We do not count your house and car as resources. Annual income must be limited to $17,235 for an individual or $23,265 for a married couple living together. Even if your annual income is higher, you still may be able to get some help.
