MassHealth advocates will be happy to see that the Governor is proposing another expansion of the upper income limit for MassHealth's Medicare Savings Programs.from the current 165% of the poverty level to 200% of the poverty level. This follows the Jan 2020 expansion from 130% to 165% and doubling of the asset test for MSP. The MSP programs pay the Medicare Pt B premiums .
