Limited Income - Newly Eligible Transition (LI-NET) is a special Medicare prescription drug program that provides temporary Part D prescription drug coverage for low income Medicare beneficiaries not already in a Medicare drug plan including:
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).
- People with low income
* Dual eligible beneficiaries: those with Medicare and full Medicaid benefits
* Those with Medicare who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) but do not have Medicaid
* Those with Medicare who qualify for Medicare Savings Programs but not full Medicaid
* Those who have applied for, and have been awarded, the Low Income Subsidy (LIS)a through Social Security Administration (SSA) or their state
Some people are automatically enrolled. Others are enrolled when they fill a prescription at a pharmacy after Medicare starts.
