CMS keeps steady Medicare Part B premiums

Posted by Guadalupe Cantu on Fri, Nov 08, 2013 @ 10:50 AM

Medicare Supplements The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have decided to keep Medicare Part B monthly premiums at bay.

Medicare Part B helps pay for physician services, medical supplies, and other outpatient services not covered by Medicare Part A service plan.

In 2014, the monthly base actuarial rate for seniors’ participants will be $209.80 per month, while those low to moderate-income enrollees will pay premiums at $104.90.

2013 monthly premium levels remain unchanged and the $147 deductible will continue for Part B plans per year.

Less relevant to participants are the Medicare Part A hospitalization premiums, this is highly due to about 99% of Medicare enrollees qualify for Part A coverage without having to pay a premium, says CMS.

In a notice published at the Federal Register, October 30, CMS notice, CMS-8055-N, enrollees that do pay monthly premiums will range between $15 $426 in 2014.

An income-related monthly adjustments amount has been imposed by the Medicare program on beneficiaries with an annual taxable income less than or equal to $85,000 or joint annual taxable income less than or equal to $170,000, is $104.90.

The most a Medicaid enrollee can pay in monthly premium is $335.70, with an annual taxable income greater than $214,000 or joint annual taxable income greater than $428,000.
