We've been paying double the normal Medicare Part B cost for the last couple of years, having been caught by IRMAA.
In answer to a couple of you who asked recently, i can happily report that IRMAA is removed automatically, just as it had been initiated automatically.
In today's mail, we got the annual letter from SS telling us the new amounts we'll receive (0.3% raise
) and the calculation included the amount of the Medicare deduction. We got our 2015 MAGI back down under the threshold, so it's back to normal again. Nice little holiday present from Uncle!
