Extra Help

Low Income Subsidy Premiums for This Plan Year

Medicare provides Part D premium and cost-sharing assistance to beneficiaries who qualify for the program’s low income subsidy, also called the LIS. An enrollee’s premium will generally be lower once he or she receives extra help from Medicare, if the enrollee joins a Sparrow Advantage plan with a monthly premium.

The premiums listed are for both medical services and prescription drug benefits (Medicare Advantage-Part D plans only).
