Medicare Part B premium & deductible won’t go up in 2014
Medicare officials announced Monday (10/29/2013) that the “Part B” premium most seniors pay for outpatient care will remain the same for 2014 — at $104.90 per month.
That’s good news for beneficiaries, following a $5-per-month increase here in 2013.
The Part B deductible, the annual amount beneficiaries pay before Medicare outpatient coverage starts, will also remain the same at $147, officials announced Monday. But the hospital care deductible or better known as Part A deductible is going up by $32 in 2014. Going from $1,184 to $1,216 in 2014.
Monthly premiums paid by upper-income beneficiaries, those above $85,000 a year, or $170,000 for married couples, will also stay unchanged.
