The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) created the Limited Income Newly Eligible Transition (LINET) Program to provide immediate, temporary medication access for low-income Medicare beneficiaries without prescription drug coverage. The LINET program is administered by Humana.
Medicare has a program that helps pay for your prescription medicine. It's called Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage or Medicare Part D. This program gives you a choice of prescription plans that offer various types of coverage. If you have enrolled or can enroll in Medicare Part D and you have limited income and resources, you may be able to get "Extra Help" with your prescription drug costs. This benefit is known as Medicare Part D Low-Income Subsidy (LIS) or Extra Help.
BenefitsCheckUp can help you assess whether you can get help from programs before you apply. Answer questions anonymously to find out if you may be eligible for key benefits programs, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Medicare Savings Programs, Medicaid, Medicare Part D Low Income Subsidy (LIS) - Extra Help, among others.
