LOL Blueskies you know me I can get anyone confused, Medicare just sent something out for me to apply for extra help with Precription drug plan and said I may quifty for extra help with paying for medicare I am thinking it part a and b I called them and got them totaliy confused as well LOL because on one question asked about total income but my husbands medicare just kicked in so his income is going down because they are taking 115.00 out and 25.00 drug plan. So I was just wondering If I will be able to get help paying for my medicare but its just wishful thinking mine comes in effect this Feb. Thanks for replying I'm hoping sence we are both disabled maybe oh well its worth a shot.
It is very worth the shot I don't have to pay anything for medicare.. I have both coverages, so you might qualify too . I also have Medi cal from the state , so extra coverage. I do not know if they go by spouse's income or not.

Yeah, definitely apply jgrangran. When do you become eligible for medicare? I hope all you guys have a fantastic weekend. SpineAZ is doing ok. She is still recovering from her knee replacement surgery. I am sure she will start posting again when she feels a little better. She is such a huge resource to this board as well as many others who post here regularly. The support is fantastic. We all keep each other going. Even when I don't post, I come here almost daily to read.
I do miss spineaz also, She is a very big help to all. But so are you. I become eligiable in Feb. Spine was right on that one also I remmber when I had trouble trying to find out the onset date but she helped me are tried I finally just acted like I understood LOL I'm good at that. Anyway I am hoping to have a good week-end. I tried looking but I think I don't quifly because we make to much like( really). We are always like 200.00 to much for something always seems like I wish we could get a break But it just make me feel anyone that gets help really needs the help exspecially if they meet those low guild lines its sad but I count my blessing daily I know my situation could be worse. At least we owe our house. Anyways have a great week-end
Thanks Gayle4102, I found that out and I don't get extra help because they also go by before medicare is taken out but I have learned to got and fillout anything that you could get help on because you don't know unless you try. Good Luck and hope you get the extra help. Thanks again for all your wonderful help.
