Medicare beneficiaries in Connecticut have access to one of the better drug help programs in the United States. Drug help programs are based on income and assets. In Connecticut however, the lowest level of drug help is called ALMB and is only based on income. It does not take assets into account.
To qualify for ALMB an individual must make less than $2,308.88 a month. This amount is raised for a couple to $3,127.28 a month. There is no asset limit for this level of drug help in Connecticut.
