Limited Income - Newly Eligible Transition (LI-NET) is a special Medicare prescription drug program for immediate short-term prescription drug coverage to people with limited income. It is designed to eliminate gaps in coverage for low-income individuals transitioning to Medicare Part D.
* Covers people new to Medicare who also get Medical Assistance (MA) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
* Provides temporary coverage while Medicare gets a person enrolled in a standard Medicare prescription drug plan for the future.
Point-of-sale prescription drug coverage ensures that individuals with Medicare's low-income subsidy, or Extra Help, who are not yet enrolled in a Part D prescription drug plan are still able to get immediate prescription drug coverage.
Retroactive coverage provides retroactive coverage for new dual eligible - those individuals who are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid or Medicare and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) from the Social Security Administration (SSA).
* All drugs covered under Medicare Part D
* There are no prior authorizations needed for drugs
* Any pharmacy that accepts Medicare drug programs (no network pharmacy restrictions)
* The person will be charged the reduced copayment, based on the level of Extra Help they get
* Prescriptions that were filled within the 30 days before enrollment
- People also on Medical Assistance (MA) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) may qualify for more months of back coverage - see yellow notice from Medicare for details
- People with low income
People with Medicare who:
* Qualify for the Extra Help program for low income people, or
* Get both Medicare and Medical Assistance (MA) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
but are not yet enrolled in another prescription drug plan
Some people are automatically enrolled. Others are enrolled when they fill a prescription at a pharmacy after Medicare starts.
To use Limited Income - Newly Eligible Transition (LI-NET), go to any pharmacy that works with Medicare. The pharmacist will check if you are enrolled, and will try to enroll you if you are not.
Bring to the pharmacy:
* Medicare card, or other proof of Medicare
* If you have MA or SSI, proof of MA or SSI, such as a MA card, letter from Social Security, or printout from the state
* If you have a yellow letter about Medicare drug coverage, bring it
