LINET is a Medicare program (administered by Humana), that provides immediate prescription coverage for Medicare beneficiaries who qualify for “Extra Help” and have no prescription drug coverage. Enrollment in LINET is temporary, usually for 1 to 2 months providing you the opportunity to choose your own plan. LINET also provides reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses during eligible periods. The benefits of the program include:
How do I apply?

Most beneficiaries are auto enrolled into the LINET program by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Be on the lookout for important communications from (CMS) and LINET.
If you have not received communication from LINET and need a prescription filled:
- Take your prescription and Medicare ID card to your pharmacy
- Ask your pharmacist to submit your claim to LINET using BIN: 015599 and PCN: 05440000.

If you have already paid out of pocket for prescriptions during LINET eligible periods, you can submit your receipts for reimbursement.
