I did get a letter in the mail saying i automatically qualify for "Extra Help." It says it's chooses the Medicare part D plan for me.


I didn't get the application for a MSP at my SS office today while i was in town. Thought it wise i not step foot in that building today.


So, do any Medicare Part C's give you any benefits in the mental health department?


I can schedule an appointment with HICAP to have them help me figure this out. They're an hour away, but i could arrange to meet a friend while down there.


The Extra Help I get is for help covering prescriptions.  And yes, it choose my insurance plan (prescription plan), which I found to be great because I didn't have to run around in circles in my head trying to figure out which drug plan I am on/want.  FWIW I also have medicare/medicaid, in which the extra help is used with that to help pay for prescriptions.
