CMS: 2015 Medicare Part B & Deductible To Remain The Same As Last Two Years

Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) Sylvia Burwell announced today that next year’s standard Medicare Part B monthly premium and deductible will remain the same as the last two years. Medicare Part B covers physicians’ services, outpatient hospital services, certain home health services, durable medical equipment, and other items. For the approximately 49 million Americans enrolled in Medicare Part B, premiums and deductibles will remain unchanged in 2015 at $104.90 and $147 respectively. This leaves more of seniors’ cost of living adjustment from Social Security in their pockets.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services also announced today that for the small number of beneficiaries who pay Medicare Part A monthly premiums, their monthly bill will drop $19 in 2015 to $407.  Medicare Part A covers inpatient hospital, skilled nursing facility, and some home health care services.
