Connecticut’s Senior’s need your help AGAIN!

Income limits for the MEDICARE SAVINGS PROGRAM (MSP) are once again in jeopardy of being cut in half by the Connecticut State Legislature and Governor Malloy. This will dramatically impact many of Connecticut’s seniors and their ability to receive medical care, stay in their homes and obtain prescription medications.

What Can You Do?

Call Governor Malloy, your State Representatives & State Senators today! Let them know how the cuts to the Medicare Savings Program will impact you and/or your family member/s.

 Key Talking Points:

• Provide your name and the town you live in.
• Tell Legislators you are calling to stop “cuts to the Medicare Savings Program”.
• Tell Legislators how these cuts will impact your life. For Example:
• Without the help from the MSP I will not be able to afford gap coverage. This will impact my ability to go to doctor’s appointments, hospital visits, etc. Who will pay the bill if I need surgery or emergency care?
• I will not be able to afford my Part B premium ($134/month). 
• I will be forced to choose between necessary expenses such as rent, heat, electricity, medication, food, etc.
• Urge legislators to continue funding the Medicare Savings Program.
