Medicare Savings Programs
You can get help from your state paying your Medicare premiums. In some cases, Medicare Savings Programs may also pay Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments if you meet certain conditions.
There are four kinds of Medicare Savings Programs:
- Qualified Medicare Beneficiary (QMB) Program

- Qualifying Individual (QI) Program
- Qualified Disabled and Working Individuals (QDWI) Program
