If a beneficiary needs help with premiums, deductibles, and co-insurance, there are several Medicare Savings Programs available. Eligibility is based on income and resource limits.
- Qualified Medicare Beneficiary (QMB) - Pays the Medicare Part B premium and Part A & B deductibles and co-payments.
- Specified Low-Income Medicare Beneficiary and Plus (SLMB and SLMB+QI-1) - Pays the Medicare Part B premium only.
- Qualified Disabled Working Individual (ADWI) - Pays for the Medicare Part A premium, but does not pay the Part B premium.
