Your Budget

We have plans with premiums starting as low as $0 month.

Will you be able to keep your current doctor?

Maybe. It depends on whether or not your current doctor is in the plan’s network of providers. Let’s check.

If your plan will cover providers that aren’t in-network.

Many advantage plans will offer services in these areas depending on your location.

Which hospitals, specialists and pharmacies are a part of the plan’s network.

These plans vary by zip code. Would you like to keep your existing healthcare facilities?

2022

The standard Part B premium amount in 2022 is $170.10. Most people pay the standard Part B premium amount.

Late enrollment penalty:

In most cases, if you don't sign up for Part B when you're first eligible, you'll have to pay a late enrollment penalty. You'll have to pay this penalty for as long as you have Part B. Your monthly premium for Part B may go up 10% of the standard premium for each full 12-month period that you could have had Part B, but didn't sign up for it. Also, you may have to wait until the General Enrollment Period (from January 1 to March 31) to enroll in Part B. Coverage will start July 1 of that year.

Part B deductible & coinsurance

In 2021, you pay $203 ($233 in 2022) for your Part B deductible. After you meet your deductible for the year, you typically pay 20% of the Medicare-Approved Amount for these:

  • Most doctor services (including most doctor services while you're a hospital inpatient)
  • Outpatient therapy
  • Durable Medical Equipment (DME)
