LI NET is a Medicare program that provides immediate prescription coverage for Medicare beneficiaries who qualify for Medicaid or “Extra Help” and have no prescription drug coverage.
Enrollment in LI NET is temporary, usually for 1 to 2 months. This provides the beneficiary time to choose a Medicare Part D prescription drug plan that best fits their needs. If the beneficiary does not select a plan within this timeframe, Medicare will enroll the beneficiary into a benchmark plan. Coverage for out-of-pocket expenses during eligible periods (retroactive coverage) is also available by submitting a direct member reimbursement form.
