Medicare increase gives me $186/year more money

I've been in the $115 club for almost a year and was expecting an increase in Medicare premium in 2012. Now I read that my premium cost will be reduced $15.50 each month.

What a country!

Thanks, Mickeyd! I'm not there yet (being a mere 63 years old), but I like to keep track of these things. So, now that I know the figure it's duly entered in my spreadsheets.

I'm a couple of months away from my first Medicare deduction form my SS check, so this is a pleasant surprise. I'd budgeted $120/mo for next year...

DW and I both began Medicare in 2010, so that's $372 that will remain in our house.

In addition, Megacorp reduced the cost of my retiree Medicare supplement for 2012.
