Extra Help, also known as the Part D Low-Income Subsidy (LIS), is a federal program that helps pay the out-of-pocket costs of Medicare prescription drug coverage for people who have limited income and resources. Resources include your savings and stocks in your 401K or other retirement plan, but not your home or care.
If you qualify for Extra Help, you will get help paying for any Medicare drug plan’s monthly premium, yearly deductible, and drug copays.
