Medicare Savings Programs Overview

Here we have an overview of Medicare Savings Programs. Speak with your Care Advocate regarding your specific needs.

Not unlike Medicaid, Medicare Savings Programs are federally funded programs administered by the states. The programs are for those who need help paying their Medicare premiums, co-payments, coinsurance and deductibles.

There are four main Medicare Savings Programs:

  • Qualified Medicare Beneficiary (QMB)

  • Specified Low-Income Medicare Beneficiary (SLMB)

  • Qualifying Individual (QI)

  • Qualified Disabled & Working Individuals (QDWI)

Medicare.gov provides the following details.

More client testimonials can be found on our Google and Facebook pages, linked below.

I could not be happier with the services provided by CareWise. Genevieve was incredibly professional and kind during the process of finding a home that could give the attention necessary for my brothers needs. Just having someone who would LISTEN to our needs took so much pressure off.

PATRICIA STEVENS

Patrick and Genevieve have worked tirelessly and with great expertise to help me find and vet the right facility for my mother. They have a broad and deep knowledge of the facilities in the greater Scottsdale area and have helped me with hundreds of details and important information about each of the choices I reviewed.

KRISTEN WALSTEDT

My elderly brother needed a new living arrangement after he convalesced following a hospital stay. My nephew connected with Patrick and Genevieve through the hospital and we could not have found the perfect place for my brother without them. There are so many options in the Phoenix area that none of us had the time to figure out what place would be best for him. The experience was great and they are both very caring and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend them if a family was in need of finding the perfect place for a family member.
