2024 Medicare Summary (English & Spanish)

Its that time of the year, the income eligibility guidelines have changed for the Medicare Savings Program (MSP). Accordingly, below are two new flyers (in English and Spanish) that include the new income guidelines for 2024 as well as an MSP flowchart outlining the three Medicare Savings Programs. More than 50% of individuals who are eligible for MSP assistance are not aware that they may qualify.

If a Medicare beneficiary would like to be screened and apply for MSP, the beneficiary may contact the CHOICES program at 1(800)994-9422.

Below are also printable versions of the Center for Medicare Advocacy’s 2024 Medicare Summary, in English and Spanish.
