Benefits 101 – MSP 101 Slides

This presentation provides an introduction to the Medicare Savings Programs (MSPs) that help seniors and adults with disabilities pay their Medicare costs.

This slide deck was prepared following the release of the 2017 Federal poverty guidelines, but before the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced the official eligibility criteria for MSPs based on those guidelines. Thus, users should first check with their state Medicaid office to determine whether 2016/2017 poverty figures are being used in the MSP determination process.
