Some CarePlus members who qualify for “Extra Help”, a program that helps individuals pay for their prescription drug costs, will receive a Low-Income Subsidy (LIS) Rider notification from CarePlus informing them how much help they will get with paying their monthly drug plan premium, deductible, and prescription drug copayments. The monthly plan premium does not include any Medicare Part B premium that a member still may need to pay. Also, receiving Extra Help will not negatively affect your health plan coverage and benefits. If you do not get a LIS Rider and you think you should have received one, contact Member Services.
A member with LIS will receive the LIS Rider notification upon enrollment and each September thereafter informing them of changes occurring for the upcoming year. You will only receive an LIS rider if any of your cost-shares are lower than the member cost-shares printed in your plan’s Evidence of Coverage. CarePlus may send LIS Rider updates throughout the year, if changes occur to the member's LIS Level.
CarePlus will send the LIS Rider notification to the member, if the member qualifies for “Extra Help” and a rider is necessary.
Keep the LIS Rider notification with your important papers, so you can refer to it if you have questions about your costs. Medicare or the Social Security Administration will periodically review a member's eligibility to make sure the member still qualifies for “Extra Help” with Medicare prescription drug plan (PDP) costs. Eligibility for “Extra Help” might change if there is a change in the member's income or resources, if a member gets married or divorced, or if the member becomes ineligible for Medicaid benefits. The member will be notified if her or his status changes.
If you have any questions about your LIS Rider notification, please call Member Services at 1-800-794-5907 (TTY: 711). From October 1 - March 31, we are open 7 days a week, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. From April 1 - September 30, we are open Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. You may always leave a voicemail after hours, Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays and we will return your call within one business day.
You must continue to pay your Medicare Part B premium. The Part B premium may be covered through your state Medicaid program.
Benefits, premiums, and/or member cost-share may change on January 1 of each year.
