Your state offers a Medicare Savings Program
Let us help you find out if you qualify
Each state offers Medicare Savings Programs to Medicare recipients whose income falls below a certain level. If you qualify, the program will pay your monthly Part B premium. This means at least an extra $121.80 in your Social Security check each month. These programs will not change your health plan benefits or coverage. They're provided by your state at no cost to you.
Am I eligible for the Medicare Savings Program?
Income and asset limits may vary from state to state. Income includes your Social Security check and any other money you receive each month. However, if you’re working, not all of your earned income will count. Assets include bank accounts, stocks, and bonds—but not your first home or car. Not all states have asset limits.
This is not a full list of eligibility requirements. A Humana Dual Eligible Outreach associate can provide more information.
For information about the income and asset limits for your area, call your State Medical Assistance office.

Choosing not to disclose financial information to Humana will have no negative impact on your health plan benefits and coverage.
If you’re approved for the Medicare Savings Program, it will take time to adjust your Medicare records. Because of this, you won’t see an increase in your Social Security check for several months after you’re approved.
