|Medicare premiums, deductibles, and coinsurance amounts change annually. Here’s a look at some of the costs that will apply in 2020 if you’re enrolled in Original Medicare Part A and Part B.|
Medicare Part B premiums
According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), most people with Medicare who receive Social Security benefits will pay the standard monthly Part B premium of $144.60 in 2020. However, if your premiums are deducted from your Social Security benefits, and the cost-of-living increase in your benefit payments for 2020 will not be enough to cover the Medicare Part B increase, then you may pay less than the standard Part B premium.
People with higher incomes may pay more than the standard premium. If your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) as reported on your 2018 federal income tax return is above a certain amount, you’ll pay the standard premium amount and an Income Related Monthly Adjustment Amount (IRMAA), which is an extra charge added to your premium, as shown in the following table.
