State medical assistance (Medicaid) offices offer a Medicare Savings Program. The Medicare Savings Program also helps people with limited income and resources pay for their Medicare expenses. If you are paying a premium for Medicare Part A, the Medicare Savings Program may pay it for you. The Medicare Savings Program can help you save more than $1,100 a year. This assistance is in addition to the extra help.
If you think you might be able to get help with Medicare costs from your state, or if you are not sure, call your state medical assistance (Medicaid) office or 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227;TTY 1-877-486-2048).
