Ways to Save

Need Help With Payments? Medicare Has Ways to Save

If you have limited resources or are on a fixed income, Medicare Savings Programs can help you save money. If you meet your state’s criteria, these programs cover items like plan premiums, copays, deductibles and more.

If you're eligible for Medicare Savings Programs, most of the time you will automatically receive Extra Help, which is a program that covers prescription drug costs.

Many people are not even aware they meet the requirements for these programs. Plus, it's possible to qualify for Extra Help even if you're not eligible for any of the Medicare Savings Programs. So finding out if you're eligible is definitely worth looking into.

You can visit Louisiana Department of Health's Medicare Savings Program page to find out if you're eligible for any of these programs.
