Q) I just got an increase in the amount of food stamps I receive. Now will Medicaid stop paying for my Medicare premium? I am in North Carolina
A) In North Carolina, if you are eligible for both Medicaid and Medicare, Medicaid can help pay for some of your Medicare costs, including your Medicare Part B premium. The amount of assistance you receive will depend on your income and resources.
Receiving an increase in food stamp benefits generally does not affect your eligibility for Medicaid or the amount of assistance you receive towards your Medicare premium. However, it is important to note that eligibility for Medicaid and the assistance provided towards your Medicare premium may be subject to change if your income or other circumstances change.
If you have any questions or concerns about your eligibility or benefits, you can contact your local Medicaid office or the Social Security Administration for assistance.
