Medicare Savings Program Restored

January 8, 2018

I recently voted in favor of a bipartisan plan to restore $54 million in funding to the Medicare Savings Program.  More than 113,000 seniors and disabled individuals depend on the state Medicare Savings Program (MSP) to purchase their Medicare Part B benefits.

Many Middletown residents reached out to me to discuss how they would be impacted by the cuts to MSP, and I want you to know that I heard you and I shared your concerns with my colleagues in the legislature.  I am pleased that this vital lifeline was restored.
