Also, please note that, even if you don’t qualify for full LIS benefits, you could be eligible for partial LIS benefits if your income level is at or below 150% of the FPL.
The FPL is also used to determine eligibility for the Medicare Savings
Programs (for example, the QMB or SLMB or QI programs). Medicare
beneficiaries must meet both income and asset requirements to qualify
for a Medicare Savings Program.
