Medicare Premiums Increase for 2022

The CMS announced premiums and deductibles for Medicare in 2022 (, 11/15/21). The basic Part B monthly premium for 2022 is $170.10, or $21.60 more than in 2021. For those with modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) in 2020 over a threshold amount, there is an additional Part B and Part D premium in 2022. The threshold amounts have been adjusted for inflation. For example, a married person filing jointly paid additional premiums in 2021 if 2019 MAGI exceeded $176,000. The threshold for 2020 MAGI used to determine the additional premiums in 2022 is $182,000. As MAGI increases, so do the additional premiums for 2022.
