Part B Premium (Including high income Part B and Part D)

Those enrolled in Part B will pay at least the standard $170.10/mo premium (based on income). Higher income earners will pay a Part B IRMAA (Income Related Monthly Adjustment Amount) in addition to the $170.10/mo standard premium.

Those with higher income who are enrolled in Part D Prescription Drug coverage also pay a Part D IRMAA in addition to the monthly insurance premium for a Part D prescription drug plan or Medicare Advantage plan that includes Part D coverage.
