Even with Medicare, healthcare is costly.
If you are a low-income Medicare beneficiary or have a disability, the Michigan Medicare Assistance Program (MMAP) may be able to help. MMAP is a free, unbiased resource with counselors who can navigate you to savings.
We can connect you with programs that can help you save on Medicare costs:
- Medicare Part D Low-Income Subsidy which helps pay for the Part D premium and reduces the cost of prescriptions at the pharmacy.
- Medicare Savings Programs which help pay for Medicare Part B.
- Medicare Preventive Services which cover many preventive health services such as yearly wellness visits, vaccinations, screenings and more. These services are available to all Medicare beneficiaries, regardless of income and assets.
Did you know?
- The Medicare Improvement for Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA) program helps Medicare beneficiaries with limited income and assets learn about programs that may save them money on their Medicare costs.
- Since it's passage in 2008, MIPPA has helped more than one million low-income Medicare beneficiaries learn about programs that can make their health care and prescription costs more affordable.
