Medicare Buy-In

Colorado Medicaid pays the Medicare Part B (Supplemental Medical Insurance) premiums for ALL clients who are on ANY MEDICAID OR ANY MEDICARE SAVINGS PROGRAM (MSP).

Most people get Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) for free; CO only pays the Part A premiums for individuals who need it if they meet the criteria for the Qualified Medicare Beneficiary (QMB) program.  There are approximately 90,000 clients on Part B Buy-In and approximately 220 clients on Part A Buy-In.  Medicare Part A & B Cost Avoidance saves Medicaid over $300 million per year.
