Qualified Medicare Beneficiary (QMB) Program

July 1, 2013

The Department will eliminate MaineCare’s payments of coinsurance and deductible. Providers cannot bill recipients for the reimbursement they are no longer receiving from MaineCare. This applies to individuals who are eligible for the Medicare Savings Program (MSP), but are not eligible for full MaineCare. This change is effective July 5, 2013, upon approval by CMS.
