Medicare Part B and Part D Income-Related Premiums
The Medicare Part B premium is $164.90 in 2023, however some beneficiaries are charged less to prevent the premium increase from reducing their net Social Security income. Other beneficiaries pay a higher premium based on income. Premiums for Part D are also income-based. For Part D, the plan premium is paid to the insurance plan and the additional income-based premium is paid to Medicare. Income-based premiums are based on your tax return from the most recent tax year.
Medicare Part B and Part D Late Enrollment Penalties: If you don’t sign up for Part B or Part D when you’re first eligible, you may have to pay a late enrollment penalty. The penalty is an increase in the amount of your monthly Part B or Part D premiums for as long as you have Medicare.
