DSS: Medicare Savings Programs: Good News for Many Medicare Enrollees

Medicare Savings Programs: Good News for Many Medicare Enrollees

The State of Connecticut offers financial assistance to eligible Medicare enrollees through our 'Medicare Savings Programs.' These programs may help pay Medicare Part B premiums, deductibles and co-insurance. More people are eligible now than ever before, as a result of a change in state law. Specifically, the state has raised the income-eligibility limits and eliminated the asset reporting requirement.
If you qualify for one of the three Medicare Savings Programs (depending on your income), DSS will pay your Medicare Part B premium each month. In addition, some enrollees will be covered for Medicare deductibles and co-insurance.
We encourage you to check out the information on the Medicare Savings Programs here, and apply for this service.
It's easy to apply, just download the application, fill it out, and send it to the address listed on the form.
The department of Social Services does not recover monies for any benefits a person receives from this program on or after January 1, 2010.  The department will still recover monies for benefits received before January 1, 2010.
