The Medicare Assistance Program at LIFE Senior Services saved Medicare beneficiaries in Northeastern Oklahoma more than $1.6 million in prescription drug costs for the 2020 season.
Serving seniors in a 17-county region of northeastern Oklahoma, LIFE's Medicare Assistance Program provides accurate and objective information and assistance relating to Medicare, Medicare supplements, Medicare Advantage and other related health coverage options for Medicare beneficiaries, their representatives or persons soon to be eligible for Medicare. Services available through the program include:
- Educational seminars offered throughout the year to help beneficiaries understand and access the services they need. LIFE's Medicare specialists are offering a number of informative virtual classes on LIFE's Facebook page.
- Personalized counseling to help Medicare beneficiaries compare, select and enroll in the Medicare prescription drug plan (Part D) that best fits their individual needs.
- Assistance in applying for the Extra Help which can virtually eliminate all prescription drug costs for those who qualify. (Medicare can pay 75% or more of prescription drug costs for those with limited income and resources.)
- Information about the SMP Medicare Fraud, Abuse and Waste Reduction Program. This program educates and empowers Medicare beneficiaries to protect, detect and report healthcare fraud.
