Medicare Savings Program Changes (2024)

MassHealth has updated its eligibility guidelines for the Medicare Savings Program (MSP).

Previously, there was an asset limit that meant owning a home or having savings could impact a Medicare member’s MSP eligibility. As of March 1, 2024, MassHealth removed the asset limit. This change will allow more residents to take advantage of benefits and save money on health care costs.

This change is a step forward to improving economic stability for tens of thousands of older adults across the state. To help spread the word on the program updates, please download the letters below to consumers from MassHealth that outlines the new eligibility guidelines.
