Medicare rate increase/makeup with high SS increase

IF one is paying less than the standard Medicare rate due to SS increases being smaller than Medicare increases, (so currently paying less than the current $148.50/month), with the large SS increase next year, could the Medicare rate increase by the 2022 amount AND more to make up for paying less now?

Yep. As long as it doesn’t exceed the SS increase.
And whatever your labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.- Desiderata by Max Ehrmann

Yes you can pay them now or you can pay them later. This happens because of the rule that your SS benefits cannot go down.
