Connecticut offers Medicare savings programs

The State of Connecticut offers financial assistance to eligible Medicare enrollees through the Medicare Savings Programs. These programs may help pay Medicare Part B premiums, deductibles and coinsurance.

If you qualify for one of the three Medicare Savings Programs (depending on your income), DSS will pay your Medicare Part B premium each month. In addition, some enrollees will be covered for Medicare deductibles and coinsurance. CT Medicare Savings Programs are funded by Medicaid.

Please call Ridgefield’s Department of Social Services at 203-431-2777, Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for more information about these programs.
