Medicare Cost Sharing (MCS) – Qualifying Individual (QI)

1 min read

This program will pay your Medicare Part B premium which is $170.10 a month. Some people will pay less than the full Part B standard monthly premium amount due to the statutory hold harmless provision, which limits certain beneficiaries’ increase in their Part B premium so that it cannot be greater than the increase in their Social Security benefits.

In addition, if you enroll in a Medicare Cost Sharing (MCS) Program, you will be signed up for the Extra Help program through Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage. This program helps people with limited income and resources pay for their medicines.


How do I apply?

To apply for the program, you can print and fill out an application form and mail it to the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS).
