Medicare Savings Programs (MSPs), also known as Medicare Buy-In programs or Medicare Premium Payment Programs, help pay your Medicare costs if you have limited income and savings. These programs offer help paying your Medicare Part A (Hospital) and Part B (Medical) remiums through a Medicare Savings Program. If you qualify, Medicare Savings Programs might also pay your Part A and Part B deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments.

There are four main programs, each with different benefits and eligibility requirements.

  1. Qualified Medicare Beneficiary (QMB): Pays for Medicare Parts A and B premiums. If you have QMB, typically you should not be billed for Medicare-covered services when seeing Medicare providers or providers in your Medicare Advantage Plan’s network.
  2. Specified Low-income Medicare Beneficiary (SLMB): Pays for Medicare Part B premium.
  3. Qualifying Individual (QI) Program: Pays for Medicare Part B premium.
  4. Qualified Disabled & Working Individual (QDWI) Program: Pays for Part A premiums only.

You’ll apply for Medicare Savings Programs through your state. When you apply, your state determines which program(s) you qualify for. Even if you don’t think you qualify, you should still apply.
