Every year the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) may change the out of pocket costs to Medicare recipients (known as beneficiaries). In 2018, the Part A premium will continue to be $0 for most beneficiaries. The Part B Premium will be $134 per month depending on your household income. Those with higher incomes will pay more. This is called IRMAA and it based on a sliding scale. Feel free to contact me for more detailed information.
The Part A Hospital Deductible is $1340 per benefit period.
The Part B Medical Deductible remains stable at $183 per calendar year.
A Rehab/Nursing home stay will cost an additional $167.50 per day for days 21-100.
Please know that a supplemental Medicare policy (Medigap) may help pay for these increased costs. Those who have Medicare Advantage Plans need to read their Summary of Benefits document since each plan has different premiums, deductibles and copays.
