Health Care Reform:

Health Insurance & Affordable Care Act

How Health Reform Affects Medicare

Have a High-Income? Premiums Follow the Same Rules

If your income this year is less than $85,000 ($170,000 for a couple), you'll pay $104.90 a month for Medicare Part B. This includes your Part D drug coverage. This will be the case for 95% of everyone who uses Medicare.

People with higher incomes will pay more for coverage.

For instance, if you earn $85,000 to $107,000 a year ($170,000 to $214,000 for a couple), you'll pay $146.90 for your Part B coverage. In this income range, you’ll also pay an additional $12.10 above the cost of your plan’s premium for Part D each month. If you earn more, you'll pay more.
