Low income premium subsidy

Extra Help from Medicare for your drug costs and premiums

If you get Extra Help from Medicare to help pay for your Medicare prescription drug plan costs, your monthly plan premium will be lower than what it would be if you did not get Extra Help from Medicare.

The amount of Extra Help you qualify for will determine your total monthly plan premium. The table below shows what your monthly plan premium will be if you qualify for Extra Help. 

2023 monthly premiums

Your level of Extra Help Assurance (HMO-POS)*Balance (HMO-POS)*Complete (HMO-POS)*
Not Eligible$50$97.00$251.00

*This does not include the Medicare Part B premium you must continue to pay.

Essential (HMO), SSM Presence (HMO-POS), and Harmony (HMO-POS) are all $0 plans so the amount of Extra Help is also $0.
