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, 2018: The 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.
