Part A Changes
Medicare Part A covers inpatient hospital care and is typically premium-free for most beneficiaries. However, for those with less than 40 quarters of covered employment, the Part A premium is expected to increase from $259 per month in 2023 to $272 per month in 2024.
The Part A Deductible covers the cost of a beneficiary's hospital stay and will increase from $1,600 per 60-day Benefit Period in 2023 to $1,632 in 2024.
Part B Changes
Medicare Part B covers medical services such as doctor's visits and outpatient care. The standard premium for Part B in 2023 was $164.90 per month; in 2024, it will increase to $174.70 per month. It's important to note that higher-income individuals may be subject to income-related monthly adjustment amounts (IRMAA), which can result in higher premiums.
The Part B annual deductible will increase from $226 in 2023 to $240 in 2024.
Part D Changes
Medicare Part D provides prescription drug coverage, and the premiums for Part D plans can vary widely. The specific premium costs for Part D plans can vary significantly based on the coverage they offer and the region in which you reside. Reviewing your Part D coverage annually to confirm your plan will cover your medications at an affordable cost is essential.
Part C Changes
Medicare Part C, also known as Medicare Advantage, is a type of health insurance plan offered by private insurance companies and can offer additional benefits and services not typically covered by Original Medicare. The premiums for these plans can vary widely based on the coverage they offer and the region in which you reside. Reviewing your Part C coverage annually is essential to confirm your doctors, pharmacy, and prescriptions are covered and affordable.
Conclusion
Staying informed of annual Medicare changes is crucial for beneficiaries. Modest increases in premiums, deductibles, and co-pays are expected in 2024. It's essential for Medicare recipients to understand how these changes can impact their healthcare costs and to review their coverage options carefully.
