Part B Spike for some, not 4 others
Most of us had this pretty much scoped out already, but here is an explanation that I received today from MOAA.
The newly passed budget deal will keep millions of Medicare beneficiaries from being stuck with a 52 percent premium hike.
Seventy percent of Medicare beneficiaries will be “held harmless” and see no premium hike for 2016. The other 30 percent will still see a (lower) premium increase in 2016.
Those who will see higher Part B premiums include people who:
- will enroll in Medicare for the first time in 2016, or
- have incomes above $85,000 a year ($170,000 for couples), or
- are enrolled in Medicare but not receiving Social Security payments.
