States must help pay some of the Medicare costs for beneficiaries who have limited income and resources. Under these programs, states help pay for Medicare Part A and Part B premiums, deductibles and copayments. Some of these programs also pay additional Medicare expenses for elderly and disabled people.
To find out if you are eligible for state help, contact your local medical assistance office. A representative can tell you the specific requirements and help you apply. If you have any questions or concerns please contact your Total Benefit Solutions, Inc Medicare health insurance specialist at (215)355-2121.
