The Part B Premium that is paid to Medicare, is “till death do us part”. You will always pay this and any plan (Medicare Supplement or Medicare Advantage Plan Premium is in addition to this cost.
**If you are receiving Social Security Benefits this Part B premium will be automatically taken off your check monthly.
**If you are NOT receiving Social Security Benefits you will be billed quarterly for the Part B premium
The standard Part B premium amount in 2022 will be $170.10 (or higher depending on your income). However, some people who get Social Security benefits pay less than this amount ($170.10 on average). You’ll pay the standard premium amount (or higher) if:
- You enroll in Part B for the first time in 2022.
- You don’t get Social Security benefits.
- You’re directly billed for your Part B premiums (meaning they aren’t taken out of your Social Security benefits).
- You have Medicare and Medicaid, and Medicaid pays your premiums. (Your state will pay the standard premium amount of $170.10.)
- Your modified adjusted gross income as reported on your IRS tax return from 2 years ago is above a certain amount. If so, you’ll pay the standard premium amount and an Income Related Monthly Adjustment Amount (IRMAA). IRMAA is an extra charge added to your premium.
