My Medicare Matters: Medicare Savings Plan, 2024 Updated Medicaid Eligibility

Medicaid assists people of all ages, including many lower income senior and disabled citizens, helping to offset Medicare costs via the Medicare Savings Plan (MSP). Multiple tiers exist, based on income and assets. The updated 2024 information is shown below.  

* Income limitations are based upon total monthly income, from all sources (Social Security, 401k distributions, pensions, dividends, etc.), before any deductions are taken, such as the Part B Medicare premium or taxes.

** Asset limitations do not include one home, one vehicle, your personal belongings, or a $1,500 burial expense exclusion.
