MLGW Partnership Benefits Customers

MLGW and the State Health Insurance Program (SHIP) are working together to help qualifying Medicare consumers get the assistance they need to make their prescription medications more affordable.

If you are on Medicare Part D, have an income below $1,436 (single)/$1,938 (couple) resource limits do apply, and you feel that your medication costs are too high, contact SHIP (State Health Insurance Program).

Qualifying individuals need to contact SHIP by phone at 222-4111. Applications will be completed at that time — no need to come into the office. Receiving extra help can lower the cost of prescription medication to a maximum of $6.50 for brand name medication, and generic medications will be even lower.

Open enrollment for Medicare Part D is Oct. 15 – Dec. 7. Call 222-4111 for dates/locations for enrollment events.

SHIP provides free, unbiased counseling for the Medicare consumer.
