Medicare Savings Program Update

January 9, 2018

In a bipartisan vote, yesterday the House of Representatives voted to restore $54 million in funding to the Medicare Savings Program (MSP). More than 113,000 seniors and disabled individuals depend on the state program to purchase their Medicare Part B benefits.

Many residents in Meriden called me to discuss how they would be impacted by the cut to MSP and I want you to know that I heard their voices and shared their concerns with my colleagues in the legislature. Connecticut takes care of its seniors and I am pleased to see this critical benefit restored.
