Qualified Medicare Beneficiary Definition
Qualified Medicare Beneficiary (QMB) is a Medicare Savings Program (MSP) administered by AHCCCS.
Participants with QMB only coverage may also receive full Title XIX services determined by DES or AHCCCS. Most QMB participants receive full AHCCCS services determined through the AHCCCS SSI MAO unit.
AHCCCS assists QMB eligible participants with the payments of Part A and Part B Medicare premiums, deductibles, and co-insurance.
To be eligible for QMB, participants must have income at or below 100% of the current FPL.
