Qualifying for Medicaid and Working with Medicare Providers

As you look to get help with Medicare costs, consider your options for qualifying with Medicaid. The Medicaid program is a joint state and federal program that can help those with limited income or resources. The program is designed to help you cover medical expenses.

While Medicare and Medicaid may sound similar, they have various differences. For instance, Medicaid offers health benefits and coverages that Medicare typically does not cover. These costs that could be covered by Medicaid include personal care services or assisted living expenses. By contacting your local Palm Beach County Medicaid office, you can learn more about if you qualify for this program or how Medicare and Medicaid work together. Additionally,. Absolute Best Insurance can also help you learn how to apply for these benefits.

Medicare Savings Plans

In the event that you do not qualify for Medicaid, you may rely on Medicare supplement plans in Florida for help with these medical costs. Medicare offers four savings programs that can help you potentially cover insurance premiums and any additional Medicare expenses. These programs include the:

  • Qualifying Individual (QI) Program
  • Qualified Medicare Beneficiary (QMB) Program
  • Qualified Disabled and Working Individuals (QDWI) Program
  • Specified Low-Income Medicare Beneficiary (SLMB) Program

These Medicare supplement plans from Medicare providers can also include the Extra Help program. You can take advantage of the Extra Help program if you qualify for Medicaid or any of the four Medicare savings plans. Under the Extra Help program, you will receive financial support to cover your prescription drug expenses. In the event that you do not automatically qualify for the Extra Help program, you can still apply online
