Medicare premiums, deductibles, and coinsurance amounts change annually. Here’s a look at some of the
costs that will apply in 2021 if you’re enrolled in Original Medicare Part A and Part B.

Medicare Part B premiums 

According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), most people with Medicare who receive Social Security benefits will pay the standard monthly Part B premium of $148.50 in 2021. 

People with higher incomes may pay more than the standard premium. If your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) as reported on your federal income tax return from two years ago (2019) is above a certain amount, you’ll pay the standard premium amount and an Income Related Monthly Adjustment Amount (IRMAA), which is an extra charge added to your premium, as shown in the following table.
