  • Part B 2012 Medicare Premiums Announced

    The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has announced that Part B premiums for Medicare beneficiaries will rise to $99.90 in 2012, an increase of $3.50 over the 2011 cost. This was far lower than the anticipated increase of $106.00 per month.

    Part B pays for physician visits, hospital outpatient costs and certain other services.

    Officials attributed the lower than expected premium increase to several factors, including lower-than-expected use of medical care and slower cost growth.
