Social Security Expert: keeperumiami, Senior Tax Expert & Financial Planner replied 11 months ago

Here's an overview:

Medicare Part A (Basic Medicare Hospital Coverage) - There's no premium.

Medicare Part B (Doctors, etc.) Standard 2017 Premium for you will be $134. per month (2018 hasn't been set yet) - This is what will be deducted from your Social Security Check.

Then there are other Supplemental Plans to cover the portion of Part A & Part B, not covered by the Basic Medicare Plans. You have to sign up for this supplemental coverage yourself.

Medicare Part D (Drugs) - There are various plans depending upon where you live & the coverages you select.

You should sign up for Medicare at least 2 or 3 months before you are eligible.

Those are the basics.

Here's link to a website that explains some of the additional information that you should be aware of. Also, you will probably want to consult with your local "SHIP" office which offers free in-person counseling with respect to the various specific plans available in your local area (which vary widely all over the country and within your state of residence depending upon where you reside).

https://www.medicare.gov/your-medicare-costs/part-b-costs/part-b-costs.html

Let me know if you have any follow-up questions.

Please remember to rate my response.

Thanks very much,

Steve G.
