Specified low-income Medicare beneficiary (SLMB)
The SLMB plan helps pay for Medicare Part B premiums. To qualify for this type of financial help, you must be enrolled in Medicare Part A. You also must meet certain income requirements. If you work, you may still be eligible even if your income is above a certain limit.
If you qualify for the SLMB program, you automatically qualify to get Extra Help paying for Medicare prescription drug coverage.
