Did you know you are paying for artificially holding down the Medicare Part B premium?
“The standard monthly Part B premium rate for all enrollees for 2021 is $148.50, which is equal to 50 percent of the monthly actuarial rate for aged enrollees (or approximately 25 percent of the expected average total cost of Part B coverage for aged enrollees) plus the $3.00 repayment amount required under current law. (The 2020 standard premium rate was $144.60, which included the $3.00 repayment amount.) The Part B deductible for 2021 is $203.00 for all Part B beneficiaries. If a beneficiary has to pay an income-related monthly adjustment, he or she will have to pay a total monthly premium of about 35, 50, 65, 80 or 85 percent of the total cost of Part B coverage plus a repayment amount of $4.20, $6.00, $7.80, $9.60 or $10.20, respectively.” SOURCE: The Federal Register 11/12/20
