Medicare Savings Program

Overview

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, January 31, 2018The effective date of any Medicare Savings Program eligibility change is extended to at least July 1, 2018, as a result of Governor Malloy’s direction to the Department of Social Services; and the General Assembly’s passage of Public Act 17-1, January 2018 Special Session.
