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.
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. Our Medicare Savings Programs are funded by Medicaid.
Updated information, May 15, 2018: Governor Malloy today signed budget legislation adopted by the General Assembly that includes full funding restoration for the Medicare Savings Programs (MSP). The legislation reverses cutbacks that had been scheduled to take effect in July 2018. This means that if you are currently getting MSP benefits, you will continue to get the same benefits going forward. We will have further information as it becomes available. Thank you.
