Restore Funds For Medicare Savings Program
To the Editor:
The Medicare Savings Program (MSP) and its income limits are valid only until July 2018.
The governor's proposed budget eliminated funding for this program at the current level for the 2018-19 budget year. Senator Hwang (800-842-1421) and others are committed to restoring the funds and will hopefully again override the governor's policy.
The state income tax revenue came in at over $1 billion above projection. That source could fully fund MSP.
Two weeks are left in the legislative session to achieve restoration of funds. Contact your representatives today. Thank you.
