What Will You Pay for Medicare in 2018?
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced that the standard monthly Part B premium in 2018 will remain $134 (or higher, depending on your income). In 2017, most Medicare beneficiaries who received Social Security benefits paid a lower monthly premium ($109, on average). However, this is likely to change in 2018.
