Our Benefits Access Specialists focus on connecting Medicare beneficiaries with limited incomes to these core benefits:
This benefit helps people with Medicare pay for prescription drugs and lowers the costs of Medicare prescription drug coverage
These programs may pay for Medicare premiums. You can keep more of your Social Security check by enrolling. Many people use the extra money to help pay for living expenses or prescription drugs.
Medicaid provides health coverage to millions of Americans, including eligible low-income adults, children, pregnant women, elderly adults and people with disabilities.
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) (formerly Food Stamps) helps low-income people and families buy the food they need for good health. Benefits are provided on the Illinois Link Card – an electronic card that is accepted at most grocery stores.
