Benefit Improvements for Low-Income Medicare Beneficiaries
The Kaiser Family Foundation has prepared a summary showing how the House-passed Children’s Health and Medicare Protection (CHAMP) Act legislation would change current law regarding assistance for low-income Medicare beneficiaries.
The summary describes proposed changes to current programs that provide assistance to low-income Medicare beneficiaries, including the Medicare Savings Program and the Medicare Part D Low-Income Subsidy (LIS) Program.
The summary reviews how the CHAMP Act would modify each of these programs in terms of eligibility requirements, verification of income and resources, re-enrollment procedures, coordination with other programs, application requirements, and estate recovery.
