  • Medicare and the Medicare Savings Program (at the  QMB, SLMB, or QI level), OR
  • Medicare and SSI (Supplemental Security Income)

For information about qualifying or applying for "extra help" paying your Medicare Part D costs:

  • Contact your local Area Agency on Aging and  tell them you want information or help applying for the the Medicare Savings Program and/or for MaineCare. OR
     
  • Contact the Department of Health and Human Services and tell them you would like to apply for the Medicare Savings Program and/or for MaineCare.
