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 get will determine your total monthly plan premium as a member of our plan.

Refer to the tables below to see what your monthly plan premium would be if you qualify for a Low-Income Subsidy.
