Help for Medicare patients with out-of-pocket costs for medications

Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., has developed this guide to help you understand how the Medicare Part D Low-Income Subsidy (LIS) program may be able to help patients afford the out-of-pocket costs usually associated with Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plans (PDPs). The Medicare LIS program is designed to help people with low incomes and minimal resources by decreasing or eliminating costs such as deductibles, co-pays, and premiums associated with drugs provided under their Part D benefits. This guide reviews the basic provisions of the LIS program and eligibility criteria, compares the standard PDP benefits with LIS benefits, and provides access to tools and resources for healthcare providers and patients.
