What are Medicare Savings Programs?

Medicare Savings Programs

are state-based programs to help ease some of the burdens of out-of-pocket costs associated with Medicare. In addition to helping with premiums, deductibles, and co-pays, if you qualify for an MSP in Kansas, you don't have to worry about the

.
People can join Medicare Savings Programs based on their monthly income and resources (money in bank accounts plus some investments). In Kansas, there are three Medicare Savings programs that we will outline below. But first, let’s talk through some of the steps to apply for MSPs in Kansas.

How to apply for Medicare Savings Programs

You can also call the following number to receive a paper version of the application if you prefer,
