The Medicare Savings Program helps people on Medicare, who qualify, pay for all or part of their Medicare premiums.

If you qualify, the Medicare Savings Program may cover your Medicare:

  • Part A premiums
  • Part B premiums
  • Copayments
  • Deductibles

You can have either Original Medicare (Parts A and B) or a Medicare Advantage plan (Part C).
