Hawaii SHIP hopes you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! We resume our Medicare Quick Bites posts this week.
“Medicare Quick Bites” is your weekly treat of Medicare information. Hawaii SHIP has created these bite-sized lessons to help you understand this complex federal health insurance, thus “Making Medicare Digestible!” Follow us on Facebook or Twitter to get your weekly delivery of Medicare Quick Bites! This week’s treat is Extra Help.
The low-income subsidy program, known as “Extra Help,” helps people who have limited income and assets with the costs of their prescription drugs and Medicare Part D. The Part D late enrollment penalty is eliminated if one maintains the low income and assets eligibility levels.
