The Qualified Medicare Beneficiary (QMB), Specified Low-Income Medicare Beneficiary (SLMB) and Qualifying Individual (QI) programs are federal Medicare Savings Programs (MSPs) which help low income elders and younger Medicare beneficiaries access Medicare benefits. In Massachusetts, the programs are called MassHealth Senior Buy-In (for QMBs) and MassHealth Buy-In (for SLMBs and QIs). This brochure is an overview of those programs, including financial eligibility information.
Income limits for these programs are updated every March 1; resource limits are updated every January 1.
