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 3, 2018: The effective date of any Medicare Savings Program eligibility changes has been extended to July 1, 2018. Governor Malloy has directed the Department of Social Services to further delay eligibility changes legislated in the bipartisan budget (Public Act 17-2, Section 50).
