You may qualify to get help paying for your Medicare premiums. The Medicare Savings Program, also known as the Qualified Medicare Beneficiaries program (QMB), is a Medicaid program that helps people with Medicare pay for their medical care.
If you have QMB, you will have no coinsurance or co-payment for Medicare covered services you get from doctors who participate in Medicare or Medicaid, or are in your Medicare private health plan’s network. This program can pay for the Medicare Part A and/or Part B premium. An individual can be eligible for QMB only or for QMB and Medicaid. This program also pays for the Medicare Parts A and B coinsurance and deductibles.
Call S&DS at 541-682-4038 and ask about the QMB program. Certain income limits apply. Ask your worker for more details.
