Medicare Eligibility

People enrolled in Medical Assistance for Employed Persons with Disabilities (MA-EPD) must enroll in Medicare if eligible.

If not enrolled in Medicare at the time they apply for MA-EPD, Medicare eligible people must apply for Medicare during the next available Medicare general enrollment period (January-March of each year), to continue MA-EPD eligibility.

Medicare Part B Reimbursement

MA-EPD enrollees may have their Medicare Part B premiums reimbursed. Reimbursement is effective the date of MA-EPD eligibility for enrollees who meet both of the following:

  • Have income at or below 200% FPG
  • Are not eligible for the Qualified Medicare Beneficiary (QMB) or Service Limited Medicare Beneficiary (SLMB) programs. See the Medicare Savings Programs chapter for more information.
