The standard Part B premium amount is $121.80 (or higher depending on your income). However, most people who get Social Security benefits will continue to pay the same Part B premium amount as they paid in 2015. This is because there wasn't a cost-of-living increase for 2016 Social Security benefits.If your yearly income in 2014 (for what you pay in 2016) was $170,000 or less - if you File joint tax return - You pay (in 2016) $121.80.If however your income was above $170,000 up to $214,000 - you pay $170.50,etc - up to $389.80.Let me know if you need any clarification this matter.
