If you have low income and assets, you may qualify for help with some of your Medicare costs from one or more of the programs below.
California's Medicaid program, known as Medi-Cal, pays for certain care Medicare doesn't, and helps pay the cost-sharing for the benefits and services Medicare does cover. Medicare Savings Programs (MSPs) also pay for some of Medicare's cost-sharing, such as the Medicare Part B monthly premium. Extra help with Medicare's Part D prescription drug costs is available as well.
