Do you have Medicare and limited income and resources?

If you have Medicare and have a limited income and resources, you may be able to get extra help paying for your Medicare prescription drug costs. Your income must be less than $15,600 if single and $21,000 if married and you must have resources less than $11,990 if single and $23,970 if married (Resource limits include a $1,500 burial allowance (for singles) and a $3,000 burial allowance (for couples)). If you qualify, you will have low or no deductible, low or no premiums, no coverage gap (also called the "donut hole"), and will pay much less for your prescriptions.
