The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) collects information from Medicare plans to track
beneficiary enrollment in Medicare Advantage (MA) or Prescription Drug Plans (PDP), improve care, and for
the payment of Medicare benefits. Sections 1851 and 1860D-1 of the Social Security Act and 42 CFR §§ 422.50,
422.60, 423.30 and 423.32 authorize the collection of this information. CMS may use, disclose and exchange
enrollment data from Medicare beneficiaries as specified in the System of Records Notice (SORN) “Medicare
Advantage Prescription Drug (MARx)”, System No. 09-70-0588. Your response to this form is voluntary.
However, failure to respond may aect enrollment in the plan.
Paying your plan premiums
You can pay your monthly plan premium (including any late enrollment penalty that you currently have or may
owe) by mail or “Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)”, each month. You can also choose to pay your
premium by having it automatically taken out of your Social Security or Railroad Retirement
Board (RRB) benefit each month.
If you have to pay a Part D-Income Related Monthly Adjustment Amount (Part D-IRMAA),
you must pay this extra amount in addition to your plan premium. The amount is usually taken out
of your Social Security benefit, or you may get a bill from Medicare (or the RRB). DON’T pay Johns Hopkins
Advantage MD the Part D-IRMAA.
People with limited incomes may qualify for Extra Help to pay for their prescription drug
costs. If eligible, Medicare could pay for 75% or more of your drug costs including monthly prescription drug
premiums, annual deductibles, and co-insurance. Additionally, those who qualify will not be subject to the
coverage gap or a late enrollment penalty. Many people are eligible for these savings and don’t even know it.
If you qualify for Extra Help with your Medicare prescription drug coverage costs, Medicare will pay all or part of
your plan premium. If Medicare pays only a portion of this premium, we will bill you for the amount that
Medicare doesn’t cover. For more information about this Extra Help, contact your local Social Security office, or
call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213. TTY users should call 1-800-325-0778. You can also apply for Extra
Help online at www.socialsecurity.gov/prescriptionhelp.
As a Maryland resident, you may also qualify for the Senior Prescription Drug Assistance
Program (SPDAP). For more information, call 1-800-551-5995 (TTY 1-800-877-5156) Monday – Friday
from 8:00 am to 5:00 p.m. Visit them online at http://marylandspdap.com/.
Automatic deduction from your monthly Social Security or Railroad Retirement Board
(RRB) benefit check.
I get monthly benefits from: Social Security RRB
The Social Security/RRB deduction may take two or more months to begin after Social Security or
RRB approves the deduction. In most cases, if Social Security or RRB accepts your request for
automatic deduction, the first deduction from your Social Security or RRB benefit check will
include all premiums due from your enrollment eective date up to the point withholding begins. If
Social Security or RRB does not approve your request for automatic deduction, we will send you a
paper bill for your monthly premiums.
Get a monthly bill.
Payments are due on the first of each month. Make your check, cashier’s check or money order
payable to Johns Hopkins Advantage MD and mail directly to Johns Hopkins Advantage
MD, P.O. Box 419169, Boston, MA 02241-9169.
