LIS EXTRA HELP

The 2018 Federal Poverty Level (FPL) Guidelines determine the income level requirements for people applying for the

Medicare Part D Low Income Subsidy (LIS) program, also known as the “Extra Help” program.

If your income is below 135% of the FPL ($18,090  if you are single or $24,360  for married couples),

Resource limits also apply:   single $13,820 and couples $27,600K.

Remember, the LIS subsidy can help  to pay both your monthly plan premiums and drug costs.
