Does anyone know if there is a way to determine if a Medicare beneficiary is receiving Extra Help from Social Security? Without waiting on hold for an hour, I mean. lol

Thanks.

It is in the upper right hand corner, same box where it shows current enrollment status for pdp. If there is nothing else in that box then they are not currently getting extra help.

I can't check right now but I'm almost certain it tells you if they have LIS

You guys are probably right. I'm getting the dreaded 'No Records Found' when I try to check her enrollment.
