2014 Medicare Rates : MOAA
November 1, 2013
Medicare officials announced that monthly premiums for Medicare Part B (outpatient care) will remain the same for beneficiaries in 2014. The basic Medicare Part B premium remains $104.90 a month.
Beneficiaries with 2012 adjusted gross income (plus tax-exempt interest income) over $85,000 — or $170,000 if married filing jointly — will continue to pay higher means-tested premiums.
The means-tested rates also will remain the same in 2014. Means-tested rates range from $146.90 to $335.70 per person per month, depending on income. The Part B annual deductible also will remain at $147.
Officials attribute the flat rates to provider incentives for producing better value for patients, fighting fraud and abuse, and an increase in prescription drug savings.
