2019 Medicare Premiums Announced

Category: Financial and taxes in retirement

October 22, 2018 — Medicare costs for 2019 have been announced, and fortunately, the increases are small. The standard Part B premium amount is $135.50 (or higher depending on your income), vs. $134 in 2018. Part B deductible and coinsurance will be $185 per year, vs. $183. The Part A deductible for each benefit period will be $1,364 vs. $1,340 in 2018. After your deductible is met, you typically pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount for most doctor services (including most doctor services while you’re a hospital inpatient), outpatient therapy, and durable medical equipment (dme)

Certain people pay different Part B premium
The standard Part B premium amount in 2019 will be $135.50. Most people will pay the standard Part B premium amount. If your modified adjusted gross income as reported on your IRS tax return from 2 years ago is above a certain amount, you’ll pay the standard premium amount and an Income Related Monthly Adjustment Amount (IRMAA). IRMAA is an extra charge added to your premium.

  1. Judy asked: Is the Medicare Part B deductible, which I think will be 185.00 in 2019, in effect every year or a one time deductible?

    Louise responded (thanks Louise!): Judy, the Part B deductible is per year.

  2. The part B Deductible is not 134 in 2018. It is 183.00.

    Editors note: Thanks Ron, we have corrected that and appreciate you bringing it to our attention!
