Expand Food Stamps

expandFood stamps

If you get food stamps, you may want to join a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan. If you qualify for Extra Help, your food stamp benefits may decline, but that decline will be offset by Extra Help.

If you're near the food stamps eligibility cutoff, you may lose your minimum food stamp benefits because you’ll be paying less for your prescription drugs. The value of the Extra Help paying your drug costs will make up for any decrease in food stamp benefits.

The types of insurance listed below are all considered creditable prescription drug coverage. If you have one of these types of insurance, in most cases, it will be to your advantage to keep your current coverage.

Keep any creditable prescription drug coverage information you get from your plan. You may need it if you decide to join a Medicare drug plan later. Don't send creditable coverage letters/certificates to Medicare.
