This program is a Medicare savings plan. It helps Medicare members pay deductibles, coinsurance, copayments, and premiums for Part A and Part B.
To qualify for this type of financial help, you do not have to be enrolled in Medicare Part A, but you must be at least eligible for Part A. You must also have an income below a certain amount.
If you qualify for the SLMB program, you automatically qualify to get Extra Help paying for Medicare prescription drug coverage.
