Medicare is a federally funded program administered by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Medicare is our country’s federal health insurance program for people age 65 or older. The Social Security Administration (SSA) processes your application and provides general information about the Medicare program.
Medicare Savings Programs (MSP) are federally funded programs administered by each individual state. These programs are for people with limited income and resources to help pay some or all of their Medicare premiums, deductibles, copayments, and coinsurance.
