Medicare Part B cost


Q. I have been on Social Security disability for the past 10 years. I have Medicare Part A now. Part B was dropped because I needed the money. If I add back Part B, how much will it cost me each month? It was about $100 a month back then.

A. For most enrollees in 2013, the monthly premium is $104.90. If you re-enroll, your premium would be 10 percent higher than the basic premium for each 12-month period you could have been enrolled but weren’t.
