Medicare Savings Programs

There are several Medicare Savings Programs that help people in paying Medicare premiums, copays and deductibles for persons with low income and limited assets.

You must meet certain income and asset limits to qualify for these programs. Note that the income limits listed refer to countable income. Countable income can include both unearned income (pensions, Social Security, unemployment benefits, etc.) or earned income (money earned from a job). "Countable" means total income after allowable deductions.
