I seem to recall paying for my quarterly Medicare premium with a credit card prior to having it deducted from my SS.

Yes.

What I did was to charge the payments to a credit card and got back 1%. I felt like I was putting something over on the government.

If so, it was apparently changed. The "Medicare Easy Pay" system now only deals with bank accounts.

A completed credit card payment request must be submitted each month a payment is to be processed. Automatic payment by credit card is not available at this time.

But, I will probably wait until I am 70, even if that is no fun. At least, that is what I am thinkng today. Tomorrow is another day...
