Low Income Subsidy

Best Available Evidence for Low Income Subsidy Beneficiaries

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requires health plans like SummaCare to provide the cost-sharing subsidy to Medicare beneficiaries who are eligible for low-income subsidies even if our system and the system at CMS do not yet reflect that eligibility.

SummaCare is required to provide you with the tools you need to submit a request to have our system updated to meet your Low Income Subsidy level as awarded to you by the Social Security Administration (SSA). For more information on how to have your subsidy level updated, please call SummaCare Customer Service or visit the CMS website and download the appropriate form(s).
