Medicare Savings Program Financial Eligibility Guidelines by State

To qualify for the Medicare Savings Programs, you must meet your state’s income and asset guidelines. The charts below give you the eligibility guidelines for each state. Use the State Selection links to jump directly to a specific state.

Even if your income (money you take in, for example, Social Security payments that you get or wages that your earn) or assets (resources such as checking accounts, stocks and some property) are higher than the guidelines in your state, you should still apply, because certain kinds of income and assets may not be counted.

The way that your income and assets are counted to determine if you are eligible for an MSP varies from state to state.

In all states, the following income will never be counted:

Some states may not count more income, and/or may exclude things from your income, such as the money you use to pay health insurance premiums (for example, Part B premiums). Also, if there are more than two people in your household, in some states you can have higher income.

In all states, the following assets will never be counted:

Many states do not count other types of assets. Some states do not have an asset limit.
