Extra Help, also commonly known as Low-Income Subsidy (LIS), is a federal program that aides Medicare beneficiaries with some or most of the costs associated with their Part D Prescription drug coverage, based on their income and assets.

The National Council on Aging (NCOA) has released the updated 2018 Income and Asset Limits for those who may qualify for Extra Help/LIS. Below is a snapshot of the limits.

There are several resources available to you and your clients regarding Medicare Part D, what it covers, applying for extra help, and much more. We have included some links/tools you may find useful.
