Medicare Part B premium


Q. Can you please tell me what the premium amount will be for Part B when I enroll in Medicare in November?

A. It depends on your income level. For Part B enrollees who had taxable income for 2012 that was $85,000 or less, it will be $104.90 per month. The monthly premium amount increases as the taxable income level goes up. It also changes from year to year.
