Medicare Savings Programs (MSPs) are state-administered programs that assist Medicare beneficiaries with limited incomes with their Medicare costs. MSPs pay for a beneficiary’s Medicare Part B premium ($170.10 per month in 2022) and also help pay their Medicare prescription drug costs. On average, this vital benefit program can save an individual more than $7,000 annually in out-of-pocket Medicare costs.
After completing this training, you will be able to help your New York City clients apply for an MSP through the Medicare Rights Center.
