State Reps. Jason Perillo, Ben McGorty and state Senator Kevin Kelly voted on Tuesday for a bipartisan plan that would provide funding for the Medicare Savings Program (MSP) through the end of the fiscal year. The MSP plan was approved in the House and Senate by veto-proof majorities.
“The Medicare Savings Program helps over a 100,000 seniors and individuals with disabilities pay their medical bills,” said Rep. Perillo. “This was one area of the bipartisan budget that didn’t sit well with me and I knew that we had to get back to Hartford to restore this funding. I will continue to be a strong advocate for seniors and individuals with disabilities and work to make sure they receive the necessary funding they deserve.”
