How to find out if you qualify for getting extra help
If you know you qualify for premium assistance, there is no need to apply. You automatically qualify for premium assistance if you're eligible for:
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
- Medicare savings progam
You may receive (or may have already received) a letter from Medicare or the Social Security Administration (SSA) about your premium assistance eligibility for this plan year.
If you have not received a letter from Medicare or the SSA, but think you may qualify for premium assistance, call:
- 1.800.MEDICARE. TTY/TDD users should call 1.877.486.2048, 24 hours a day/7 days a week.
- The Social Security Office at 1.800.772.1213 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. TTY users should call 1.800.325.0778.
- Your State Medicaid Office
