Online Bill Payment for Medicare Premiums

man smiling and looking at laptop Social Security is here with tools and information to help you secure today and tomorrow. Did you know that you can pay your Medicare premiums online? If your bank offers the option to pay your bills online, you can use their service to pay for your Medicare premiums bill from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

You, or your representative, must sign up for your bank’s online bill payment process and you can contact your bank directly for assistance. Social Security and CMS are not involved in establishing the online bill pay service with your bank. Before you contact your bank to set up the process, make sure you have the following information available:

  1. Amount of your Medicare premium bill
  2. Account number: Medicare claim number without dashes. You can find this number on the red, white, and blue Medicare card.
  3. Biller name: CMS Medicare Insurance
  4. Biller’s address:

Medicare Premium Collection Center
P.O. Box 790355
St. Louis, MO 63179-0355

You’ll need to tell the bank how much money to deduct from your account to pay for the Medicare premium. You’ll also need to update the amount with your bank whenever there is a change in the Medicare premium amount. This usually happens in January when CMS announces the new Medicare premium rates. You can find more information at Medicare.gov or CMS’s online bill pay webpage.

Remember, CMS does not charge a fee for processing the electronic payments, but in some situations, a bank may charge their customers a fee for using their online bill payment service. If you have any questions about bill pay, please contact your bank or financial institution directly. You can also visit CMS’s  online bill pay for more information on paying your Medicare premiums.

  1. Is there a form to fill out if I don’t want to take my social security yet but that I can take 1/2 of my husband’s social security until I reach the age of 70?

  2. Why does Medicare send a letter each month saying the amount due. That is a waste of money. for the people sending it, the paper , the stamps………. If a person has signed up for online bill pay there is no reason to send a letter each month……………. Maybe once a year but not every month. A small way to save some money.

    • I appreciate the summary they send to me, because one time I was billed for a service and paid it and when I got the summary from Medicare I wasn’t suppose to pay anything. So I called and told the service provider and they sent me my payment back in full.If I hadn’t received a summary that service provider probably would’ve kept my money.

    • Joyce I apologize I had no idea Medicare sent out bills. I misunderstood I thought you were speaking about the summaries they send out. Duh you did say a letter and bill pay. Once again I apologize.

  3. Too bad–your article did not make clear that this payment method was for folks who do not get a Social Security benefit yet. You’ve confused lots of folks.

  4. My Medicare Premium bill that comes in the mail is for 3 months. If I set up the automatic payment, can I do it monthly, instead of every 3 months.

  5. It would be even more helpful to send e-mail reminders 7-10 days before Medicare payment is due AND when it is received.

  6. There was an increase which is called Cola I did not get the increase why is that I thought everyone got an increase

    • If your Part B premium is less than $134.00 per month your Part B is being subsidized by taxes and other recipients. About 70% of folks under Part B do not pay the full premium due to “hold harmless”. This means your net social security payment cannot go down when you do get a COLA. The COLA increase goes to the Part B premium. This also means that 30% of Part B recipients help subsidize the 70% under hold harmless by paying a higher premium to make up the costs of the program. 25% of the cost of Part B must be borne by premiums. The rest is taxes. And if you have higher income, you may have to pay a higher premium as well.

  7. TODAY IS MY ANNIVERSARY SINCE I CAME IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICAN
    19886–2017.31 YEARS GOD SAVE ME ONE DAY A TIME.

  8. My Medicare and my husband’s ,part A and B has always been deducted from our Social Security benefits then sent to our bank as DIRECT DEPOSIT. Has this changed?

    • I would like to cancel our MEDICARE Plan B. Is there a form to facilitate this ?
      We live out of the country and are not planning to travel up anymore due to our financial situation so wish to cancel the payments to Plan B

      • Hi, Ellen. Thank you for your question. To terminate your enrollment, you will need to submit a signed request for termination or Form CMS-1763. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requires, when possible, a personal interview be conducted with everyone who wishes to terminate entitlement. Therefore, we do not offer form CMS-1763 online. Since you are living outside of the U.S., you can contact your local Embassy or Consulate to submit this form. We hope this helps.

        • Allow us to clarify. Our policy requires, when possible, that a personal interview be conducted with everyone who wishes to terminate their Medicare Part B benefits. We can help you submit the required Form “CMS-1763/Request for Termination of Premium Hospital and /or Supplementary Medical Insurance”, or your signed request for termination. However, we need to speak to you personally before we terminate your Medicare benefits to be sure that you fully understand the consequences of doing so. Therefore, we do not offer Form CMS-1763 online.

        • That is NOT
          TRUE! It is Part B, which people have to buy through an insurance firm that the lady was referencing, and one CAN CANCEL any part except for Part A. CMS-17763 is the Social Security form you need to do this, but good luck in getting that form from Social Security!

      • I have a situation where my employer is now paying for all of the medical benefit, so I have cancelled my Part D and Part F (supplement), but have not received the form that Soc Security was supposed to mail to me to cancel Part B. I was told (and AARP confirmed) it is form CMS-1763. CMS continues to bill me and I am NOT going to pay them, but I want to close this out correctly so that I can again get Part B when I need it again. I call medicare, they tell me to call social security. I call social security they say the form will be out to me ASAP. It has been over a month and no form yet! How can I stop being billed for Part B when Social Security is not responsive?

  9. I am retired & getting a monthly social security check. I received my Medicare card a few months prior to my 65th birthday. My husband still is working full time & has insurance through his work. Why did I automatically get Medicare at age 65? This doesn’t seem right that now almost 1/3 of my social security check if being taken out for my Medicare payments. Initially it was going to be less but due to my husband’s income, the amount shot up toalmost a third of my ss check? Since I am retired, my social security is my main income! Why is my Medicare payment adjusted according to his income as well? We shouldn’t have to pay any Medicare payments since we paid into Medicare while we worked! According to some responses I saw above, we are expected to pay for 70 – 75% of people who didn’t pay in as much or possibly did not ever pay into Medicare! That is not right!!
    My husband turns 65 next year but still plans to work & doesn’t plan to start taking his Social Security until he quits working…probably at 70 years of age! Will he be automatically put on Medicare at 65 & have to pay Medicare month;y premiums? This should be changed!

    • Thank you for sharing your comments Patty. Individuals receiving Social Security retirement benefits, will be automatically enrolled in Medicare Hospital Insurance (Part A) and Medical Insurance (Part B) at age 65. However, a beneficiary may refuse Medicare Part B, during his or her Initial Enrollment Period, if that beneficiary or the spouse, actively works and has coverage under a group health plan, based on that employment, then he or she doesn’t need Medicare part B until the work activity ends or that health care coverage is dropped. We always suggest that individuals speak to their personnel office, health benefits advisor, or health plan representative to see what’s best for them, and to prevent any penalties or delayed enrollment in the future. Please contact your local Social Security office for further assistance or call our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213. Representatives are available Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

    • Yes, like the SSA representstive said, you do have yo at a very mimimum take an interest in your own finances. Why didn’t you ask your questions when you first got the card? No, instead you wait, and only then complain. You don’t even know what it is you’re complaining about! Here’s an idea, everyone – tske a little responsibility for ypur own life – everything is on the website, both hete and in Medicare.gov – presumably you can use a computer if you’ve figured out how to get to this blog and type out a complaint…

  10. I begin receiving social security in January. How much tax will I have to pay on my monthly benefit? I would like to know how much I will actually receive.

  11. MEDICARE or SSDI, it’s all via the web.
    I am a 100% Service Connected Disabled veteran, I live in Germany with German family and where my military specialty kept me.
    I receive my SSDI check direct deposit to the US Service Credit Union which I we will always be able to use. I use home banking to pay all US, foreign bills and.GE bank. Everything on-line.
    So, will there be a problem, or how should I get MEDICARE ( long term medical care facilities) for what FMP will not pay?

      • Hi Ray,
        I mailed a detailed letter to my local SSA office stating I DID NOT want Medicare enrollment because I already have, and have had for many years, full hospital, medical, drugs, vision, and hearing coverage through my spouses employer which has a few hundred employees. I also filed this online. However, SSA still deducted the $134 medicare premium from my monthly social security retirement benefit. How can I stop this and get a refund? Thanks.

  12. SSI needs to simplify its application and publish an online SSI application form. There are several inefficiencies with the current SSI application form that cause administrative cost growth in excess of 7%. These inefficiencies must be eliminated in the case of in-kind support and maintenance (ISM) rules and made optional in case of a medical diagnosis of permanent disability.

    SSI income verification is done by a person’s social security number under 26USC§6103(7)(D)(iii) of the Internal Revenue Code. SSA has access to the income information and only requires the law to provide confidential information to state agencies who administer certain other welfare programs under Sec. 1137 of the Social Security Act under 42USC1320b-7. The asset limit of $2,000 probably needs to be overruled in theory, although in practice there are so many extremely poor people who need to be prioritized for benefits, it however must be routinely overruled for beneficiaries who manage to save money through free room and board. In-kind support (ISM) of private benefactors needs better respect whereas it is completely competitive with the respected, untaxed, career of homelessness. Charitable givers require better protection from unfair judgment upon free food and housing because social security refuses to enable their beneficiaries to pay their private benefactors market price. Social Security does tend to pay if a person moves out but the law demands social failure and work. ISM is a socially disruptive crime for homelessness against charitable giving and family cohabitation. Whereas all other such work-trade free living relationships are of such little consequence and fragile no “homeless person” ever reported them. If receiving free room and board it is probably better to file as a homeless person from a PO box or representative address.

    SSA needs to cooperate better with institutions to pay and adequately study child benefits to people represented by orphanages and schools. The Treasury needs to stop conspiring with state and local governments charging $2,500 a month, to rob long-term nursing home beneficiaries of all but $30, The tradition of taking of all of any pension received while in the care of the naval hospital must be overruled by up to 70% for the hospital under 24USC§6 as a miscellaneous receipt of the Treasury under §6a. Chapter 6A cannot continue to rob Chapter 7 of Title 42.

    The rich over 65 and ultimately all working Americans with incomes over 150% of the poverty line may come pay their unlawfully extortionate Medicare premiums online. The poor are defecting to Medicaid, and the rich are inflating at such high rates that the 10% premium increase only improves the outlay revenue ratio by about 2.5% in the 2017 Medicare report. The statutory tradition of taking all of any pension abusively conceals the TRICARE medical insurance program the military actually pays with and should not be confused with the ancient “pension” somewhat overruled in Sec. 6A. The taking of all but $30 while in the long-term care of a hospital or nursing facility, needs to be overruled. It would seem that patients are due 30% of their benefits, and nursing homes 70%.

    • They take your money to pay for ALL your living expenses in those places – rent, utilities, all meals, transportation to medical appointment and other places, all medical ecpenses…Frankly, that costs FAR more than the miney they’re “taking” from you LAWFULLY.

  13. The over hauling of Social Scrurity, is somewhat part of the answers, but not all. I am 68 years old. My ssi/ SSA. Are my main source of income, but I get very little amount every month. So when Medicare take’s out for my main payment to part A/B. Which is over 134.00 dollar’s a month. This leve’s me only 755.00 a month to live on. I have to pay rent and other bills also. By the time it’s all paid I only enough for food. So I’ve been looking to go back to work part time in order to somplement my income. I think it’s about time for a rise. Thank you.

  14. Yes there is little to live on when you get social security and pay the bills. To make matters even worse, they pay you on their birthday rule since a certain year they decided to do so. So for those of us, we do not get paid the same day each month. Due to this, utilities and other bills we owe charge late charges which take more money we could use for groceries. I know there are a vast number of people getting SS, but seems they could have chosen federal employees, congress etc who could afford to get paid on the birthday rule, Also agree your article should have said that the auto withdrawal is for people who do not get checks.

    • There are MILLIONS of people in Social Security. The SSA uses less than 4% of everything for administration costs. Maybe you’d rather they chew up all the funds to add staff and hardware so they can customize every payment to every one of those millions, so it’s convenient for you…seriously????

      • Marc, you need to quit being such a smart-#!! in all of your “replies”! Nobody is asking for your negative input, most of these people asking questions are really looking for smart answers, not your condescending, useless input! Keep your unnecessary comments to yourself! Nobody wants your stupid, idiotic replies!

        • Thank you Kymberly! Marc, between all the flavors of SSXX, MedicXXXX, and layers of changes and exceptions, it is difficult at best to navigate through what applies to millions of different situations. I often get 4-5 different answers from 4-5 different SS reps responding to a single question.

  15. Good Afternoon, I recently got denied and did an appeal. As of right now its under reconsideration and was wondering how long does it take to get a response or letter. Thank you have a great day.

    • Thanks for your question, Donna. In most states, there are four levels in the appeals process. A reconsideration is usually the first level. Typically, the length of time it takes to receive a decision on your reconsideration is about 60 days, but the amount of time could vary from case-to-case. We reevaluate all evidence, plus any additional evidence submitted and make a new decision. If you disagree with the reconsidered decision, you can choose to go to the next level of the appeals process. For more information on the appeals process, read our publication: http://go.usa.gov/BKcB. Also, for follow up you can call our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778). Representatives are available Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Generally, you’ll have a shorter wait time if you call later during the day or later in the week.

  16. ATTN: Ray Fernandez:
    I wholeheartedly agree with previous comment of Jo on August 7th!!

    I would find it very helpful budget wise if instead of receiving Social Security payment on 2nd Wednesdays (which could be anywhere from the 8th to 14th of the month), payment could be one fixed date; say the 8th or 10th of each month. Rent and utilities bills are not due on revolving dates of the month. I understand that not everyone can be paid on the 1st (or 3rd) of the month but it’s really trying to get bills paid on time with Social Security being paid on somewhat random dates.

  17. My wife’s Social Security Benefits payment will start next month. However, last month she paid her quarterly Medicare Part B premium in advance. Will SSA deduct Medicare Part B premium from her next benefit payment

    • Hello Larry. Thank you for your question. For your security, we do not maintain access to anyone’s personal information via this medium. We ask that members in our Blog community continue to work with their local servicing office with questions that pertain specifically to their cases.

  18. i moved from grove street hendersonville i have last ssi payment for landlord sold 97 piney ridge rd .i took my ssi book rip page .Treasury .never payed i transfer in marianna florida.i was heart broke

    that was 7/14 where stopped moving here non payment non treasury,i had it check at marianna fl /book is pure wage earner .

  21. I need the form to authorize SSA to take out my Medicare Advantage plan premium. Where can I get this? Can I have it emailed to me or is it on line somewhere?

  22. I receive my Social Security disbursement via direct deposit to my bank. A few months ago I turned 65, and you automatically reduced my disbursement by the monthly premium amount of original Medicare, which I choose to accept at the time. The Medicare enrollment period starts Oct. 15, and I’m thinking of taking one of the private-sector Medicare services (through Humana or other company). There is no monthly premium for the services I’m looking at. If I enroll in one of those, will the current Medicare deduction from my SS continue?

  23. Is the Medicare premium withheld from the benefit check for the next month or the current month?
    Concrete example:
    I did file-and-suspend, so have been paying the Medicare premium bill monthly. I have a premium bill for November, due Oct 25. If my first SS check is received in October, does it pay the November premium?

    • Thank you for your question, Bill. Medicare Part B premiums are paid in advance. Meaning that you pay the premium for the month of November in October. Please call our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213 and speak to one of our agents for further guidance and assistance. Representatives are available Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

      • I started taking Medicare when I turned 65, paying monthly. I applied for SS 6-months later but had paid Medicare 2-mo in advance due to Medicare’s advance billing policy when not on SS. Now I am due a refund for 2-months of Part B premiums.

        Following are the (4) different answers I have been given by SS agents regarding premium overpayments:

        – Medicare overpayments are reimbursed quarterly on the 27th, to the Direct Deposit account or by check if no Direct Deposit;
        – Overpayments are reimbursed the following month, on the same day my SS benefits are deposited;
        – Overpayments will be reimbursed “any day now” because the credit already appears in my Medicare record;.
        – Each monthly Medicare credit will be reimbursed to me separately by check as soon as they are posted to my Medicare account.

        It should be noted that each SS agent put me on hold for 3-5 minutes while they researched my question, presumably with a more senior agent.

        My Question:
        When a current Medicare recipient begins Direct Deposit SS benefits at a future date, what is the correct timing and payment method for reimbursing Medicare overpayments that occur during the transition to SS?

  24. My mother receives medicare A & B and also has Tricare insurance. She recently received notification she is no longer eligible for assistance from her state to help with copays, premium, etc. Does she need to contact Social Sec. to inform them of this change in order to have her part B premium deducted every month monthly or does the state notify Social Security?

  25. In April, at a “Medicare” Seminar (hosted by an independant marketer), we were told that my husband had to get off my insurance and take Medicare B or Medicare Advantage because he turned 65 (in April). He is retired (independant contractor). When I took the Retirement training class in June, I learned that he could haved stayed on my insurance until I retire ( I am a Federal Employee). He was originally on my insurance until they told us he had to take Medicare Benefits. How do we stop the premiums being taken out of his SS Retirement Check, so that I can get him back on my insurance?

  26. I need to know how much I owe for my medicare for 2017. My social security is held each month to pay for my Medicare and at the end of October or first of November I have to pay the difference. I have misplaced my bill for this amount and need to know how much I owe and where to send it or can I pay it on line.

  27. A question for Ray Fernandez:
    I started receiving Medicare at age 65, so I’ve been paying my Medicare premiums when I receive quarterly bills in the mail. Now, having reached age 66, I’ll start receiving Social Security benefits next month. Therefore, SS will start deducting my Medicare premiums from my SS benefits. I’ve already paid my Medicare premiums for November and December, yet SS apparently will be deducting the amount of those premiums from my benefits. How do I obtain a refund of my previous payments for Nov. and Dec.? Will SS automatically refund those premium payments, or do I need to take some action? If the refund will be automatic (no action required on my part), when can I expect to receive it? I’ve arranged to receive my SS benefits via direct deposit to my checking account. Will the refund of my Medicare-premium overpayment be direct-deposited into the same account? Thank you for your assistance.

  29. Reply to Ray Fernandez:
    I just phoned Social Security and was told the wait time was one hour and 15 minutes. That’s unreasonable. My Nov. 15 (1:53 pm) question (above) about refunds of Medicare premiums that an individual has previously paid and then also had deducted from her SS benefits is a general one. Therefore, I don’t see why you can’t answer it.

    • Hi Joan, we are sorry to hear that you are having difficulty reaching someone by phone. We are experiencing higher than normal call volume.
      Usually, refunds for (excess) Medicare premium-payments, are made automatically within 60 to 90 days. Payments should go directly to your checking account. Each case may be different, this is why we recommend that you contact and speak to one of our representatives directly, for confirmation.

      • Mr. Fernandez,
        Like Joan, I have the same question regarding Medicare premium overpayments. Unfortunately, AFTER speaking to 4-5 different SS reps, I received 4 different answers to my specific situation. Your general answer for reimbursement in “60-90 days” follows the quarterly refund answer I got from one of the reps. This is disturbing since Medicare requires premium payments in advance but SS is not held to the same standard for reimbursing overpayments. Overpayments should be refunded as soon as they are identified as overpayments in my account, especially since you say the “refunds for Medicare premium payments are made automatically”, meaning no human intervention. I have 2 Medicare premium overpayments aging in the system and have to wait up to 90 days for a refund!!!!! If the shoe were on the other foot, my Medicare Part B coverage would be cancelled for non-payment. It is also clear this policy is not well-understood by the SS reps, otherwise I would’ve gotten the same answer each of the 4 times I called.

  30. When will we get a new statement of the amount we will be getting for the new year? Also how much comes out of SS check to cover are medicare?

    • Hi Sheryl. If you’re referring to the cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) notices for 2018, these notices are mailed during the month of December. Information about Medicare changes for 2018, when announced, will be available at http://www.medicare.gov.

    • Hi Patricia, if you already receive Social Security or SSI benefits and you have a bank account, you can sign up for Direct Deposit by:
      •starting or changing Direct Deposit online (Social Security benefits only), or
      • contacting your bank, credit union or savings and loan association, or
      • calling Social Security toll-free at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778), or
      Consider the Direct Express® debit card as another viable option.

  31. I am trying to find out what my medicare premium bill is. I have not received a bill for over a month. I have tried to locate online and am unable to find it. Will I get a bill or statement at some point?

    • Hi Mark. If you get Social Security, Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) or Civil Service benefits, your Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) premiums will get deducted from your benefit payment. If you don’t get Social Security payments, RRB, or Civil Service benefits, you’ll get a bill called a “Medicare Premium Bill” (CMS-500).
      Normally, if your premium is late, you’ll get a second bill-notice reminding you to pay your premium. Visit http://www.medicare.gov for more information.
      If you have specific questions about your bill or the status of your Medicare coverage, call our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY: 1-800-325-0778). Representatives are available Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Generally, you will have a shorter wait time if you call later during the day, or later in the week, thanks.

  32. Hi,
    I’ve been trying to pay for my Part B premium online but the only option I have is to set up the payment with my financial institution. I received a delinquent notice and I had to pay it by 11/25/17 or my Part B of Medicare is going to be cancelled 11/30/17. I haven’t had a chance to make the payment because I didn’t understand how the premium worked until I spoke to an independent agent that explained to me in detail how it works. I work from 7 am to 4 pm. So I can’t make it to the nearest Social Security office because I miss the hours of operation for the SS office. I can send the payment via mail but my concern is that my Part B will get cancelled because my premium is delinquent. How am I guaranteed the it won’t get cancelled if I make the payment now that it’s past due? I would like for someone to please contact me. I need some help with this matter.

    Thank you!

  37. I haven’t received my Medicare premium bill for January 2018.
    It usually arrives around the 8th of the month. When will it be sent out?

  38. I recently enrolled in Medicare Part A & B. When I got my premium notice, I set up the payment thru my credit union’s bill pay service. I entered an incorrect medicare account number (1 incorrect digit) and authorized the payment. I just received another premium notice and realized my error.

    I contacted both my credit union and Medicare. All that Medicare says they can do is open an “escalation case” which will take at least 7 calendar days (not counting weekends) for someone to follow up with me.

    Since I know the account number that the funds were originally sent to, it would seem to be relatively straight forward to correct this errant payment and apply it to my correct medicare account number. Apparently not.

    My most recent statement says that my medicare will be CANCELLED on 12/31/17 if payment is not made.

    HELP! What can I do to get this (my) error resolved?

  39. I should have received a bill in the US mail for my Part B Medicare premium. I will not collect SS until July, 2018, so I pay the premiums direct. I can send my premium through my credit union’s bill pay service. But can you tell me if there is a bill (lost in the mail) with my private information on it? I know you need more info to check on this. What phone number shall I call?

  41. My wife’s SSA Benefit based on my account was $129. a month. She was born February 17, 1953. As of February 1 she will be eligible for Medicare Parts A & B.
    Part B premium is $134. so she (we) will be billed the difference and her wife’s benefit will stop starting January 2018. All understood.

    Thank you.

    • Thank you for contacting us, Suzanne. Our system is set up to take applications three months in advance. Keep in mind that Social Security benefits are paid the month after they are due.

    • Hello Quiera. Individuals receiving retirement benefits are automatically enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B at age 65. However, because you must pay a premium for Part B coverage, you do have the option of turning it down. We always suggest that individuals speak to their health benefits advisor, or health plan representative to see what’s best for them, and to prevent any penalties or delayed enrollment in the future. In your case, if you have coverage under a program from the Department of Defense, your health benefits may change or end when you become eligible for Medicare. You should contact the Department of Defense or a military health benefits advisor for information before you decide whether to enroll in Medicare medical insurance.
      To learn more about the Medicare enrollment periods and other important information visit http://www.Medicare.gov. For specific questions about your case, call 1-800-772-1213, M-F between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. and ask a representative to assist you, or you can contact your local Social Security office directly. We hope this helps!

  57. could there be an easy answer for getting my Medicare premium BILL online. I see how I can pay it online, but what if I don’t know how much to pay and can’t find the mailed one. IS THE BILL ONLY MAILED? Or is there some magic way to find MY BILL, online. Thanks much for your help.

  58. Hello, my name is Jumelys L. Moreno-Bosman, and I am trying to set up and send my Medicare payments with the bank, but I’d rather have Medicare make automatic deductions from my account instead. Is it possible? Also, I don’t know how much I have to pay. Could someone enlighten me on that? I have to start payments on May 1, 2018 for the first time. Thank you, Jumelys

  59. Hello,
    I am Raymond King. I was trying to pay my Medicare premium online today, however I can’t find a way to do that. I also would like to change my premiums to monthly. The first day of the month. Could you please help me?

  60. This is NOT “ONLINE BILL PAYMENT FOR MEDICARE PREMIUMS.” “Online Bill Payment” would mean there was one website where a person enrolled in Medicare could view and pay their premiums. It’s not rocket science; any retailer with an online bill payment system could show SSA how to do it. As someone who uses computers in my law practice and to deal with my personal credit cards, I’m appalled at how utterly out of date the technology on the SSA and CMS sites is.

  61. WHY IS MY SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER ON MY MEDICARE CARD? CAN I GET A CARD THAT DOES NOT HAVE MY SS # ON THE CARD?

    • Hello John, the good news is that a new Medicare card is coming, one that will no longer display a cardholder’s SSNs. Please contact: Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services at 1-800-633-4227 (TTY 1-877-486-2048) for additional information or other questions about this matter. Thanks!

  62. I have been trying for over a year to get a refund, for double payment made to medicare. I had prepaid for medicare while I was still working. Once I retired medicare took the payment out of my SS check. Therefore medicare had been paid twice. I have called and gone to SS office. And still have heard nothing. Kindly contact me so we can resolve this matter.

    • We apologize for this inconvenience, Richard. Unfortunately, but for security reasons, we do not have access to personal records in this blog.

  63. I paid 3 months for Medicare to start on my American Express. I signed up for SS and was told the payments would be taken out of my monthly checks and the 3 months on my Amex would be refunded. It wasn’t. I called and was put on hold and told they would call me back, they didn’t.

    • We apologize for the inconveniences, Ron. The time it takes to process your Medicare premiums refund, can vary. It depends on when the payment was made in conjunction with the time your application for retirement benefits was processed. It also depends on the beneficiary’s payment cycle or payment date. However, the refund is almost automatically. You cannot be charged a double Medicare premium for any particular month.

  64. I have not received any medicare bills so I just sent what I thought was the correct amount. Will I ever receive a bill or do I need to continue guessing? I would like to set up on line payments.

    • Hi, Ann. If you get Social Security, Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) or Civil Service benefits, your Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) premiums will get deducted from your benefit payment.

  75. I started paying for medicare last year. I had the payment automatically deducted from mychecking account. I started to receive my Social Security check, but two payments for medicare were deducted from my checking account before the automatic payment stopped. How do I get a refund for those two payments?

    • Hello Ray. Generally, the refund is processed “automatically” when the system identifies a double payment occurred in your record. However, you can call our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213 and ask one of our agents to assist you in this matter. Representatives are available Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Or you can contact your local Social Security office directly.
      Thanks!

      • I don’t understand why a common scenerio of getting medicare at age 65 and paying medicare premium deductions directly and then transitioning to getting social security benefit checks with medicare premium deductions at age 66 is not documented on either the medicare or SSA websites. I would imagine thousands if not millions of people have the same question. Which month does the first Social security check premium deduction apply to. I have tried to get this answer through several methods and all I get is confusion. NO agent seems to know this. A prior answer from Ray Fernandez was also confusion since the statement that medicare premiums are always in advance was unclear whether you were talking about direct premium payments or SSA deduction payments. This needs to documented clearly with common examples instead of always referring to the 800 SSA helpline. No one wants to wait over an hour on hold. My local office has a wait time of over 4 hours. I tried to ask this via the email form and all I got back is generic nonsense about medicare premiums unrelated to my specific question. I directly pay premiums through the month of June. My first benefit check was also in June. Does the premium deduction either pay for:

        a) previous month (MAY) same as the benefit check covers or
        b) same month (JUNE) as the check arrives or
        c) next month (JULY) as payment in advance just like personal direct premium payments.

        I received no final quarterly statement (as of the end of September, i.e. over 90 days) showing which payments covered which months.

        There is no online billing interface on the medicare or SSA websites in your customer portal as we all know.

        As many have stated, waiting a long time on phone hold or waiting a long time at your local office is not appropriate for this GENERIC question that could be easily documented on the Medicare or SSA websites.

        • If you use the SSA chat interface, you can request a callback in 15 minutes. Many questions will be answered by that agent instead of waiting the one hour or more by calling SSA directly via their 800 number.

          In my case, the answer was the medicare premium deduction on the retirement benefit check applies to the month that the check is received. For example, if your benefit is for October and you get paid in November as per the usual next month payment process, the deduction on that check also applies to November.

  76. I would . like to know what medicare paid to Dr. William C. Chaney for the offices and chiropractic work he did don me from 6/29/2018 to 7/13/2018. can you please send that information to me by email

  77. I received a letter on Monday, July 23 stating my credit card had been declined. I had until July 25 to send my initial premium in the amour of $402.00. I over-nighted a new credit card number on Monday, July 23. USPS tracking shows Delivered July 24, 2018 at 10:38 am Delivered, To Agent Saint Louis, MO 63179. How can I check to be sure that my initial premium was received in time to begin Medicare by August 1, 2018? (My 65th birthday is August 10.) Thank you.

  78. Follow up questions to the one I asked on July 31, 2018. Summary: Before the automatic checking account payment for Medicare was stopped there was an overlap with the Medicare deduction from my social security check. This will be “automatically” detected and I will get a refund. Two questions:
    1) Will this refund be a check(s) or deposit(s) back to my account?
    2.) Is there a way I can check to see if the “stop” for the checking account payment has fully processed?
    Thanks,
    Ray

  81. I applied already for my social security at the age of 66 and my first check coming in October 2018. My medicare bill is paid up to Aug 31, 2018, and I am getting a bill for $402.00 (quarterly) starting 1 Sep 2018 thru Nov 2018. Do I have to pay nothing (from my pocket) because it will be taken out as a deduction annually from my social security benefits. Or pay the whole amount, then get reimburse?

  82. I just got my medicare card a few days ago and then got a bill for 1072.00 for 04/01/2018 until 11/30/2018
    I understand I have to pay 134 per month but 3 months have already passed and I was told I would be billed quarterly.

  83. I used to have Medicare Easy Pay. Part B premium was deducted from my bank account. A couple years ago my bank merged with another one. They were using both routing numbers until last month , when they dropped my original routing number. My payment was not taken. There is no where on the Medicare Premium bill to report any change with the banks. We are not to write anything on the notice. I tried to send a note along, but I still got another bill. Unfortunately, I just found the bill that had been buried in other paper work. Medicare site shows a form that would be sent by Medicare if I ask for it. The customer care at Medicare said to contact Social Security. This site does not say Easy Pay anywhere. It just says to contact my bank to set up auto payments.

    • Hi Melody. Anyone who has Medicare can get Medicare prescription drug coverage (Part D). Some people with limited resources and income also may be able to get Extra Help. This Extra Help will help pay for the costs, such as monthly premiums, annual deductibles, and prescription copayments.

      You can apply for Extra Help online. To schedule an appointment or to apply for Extra Help over the phone, contact us at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., or contact your local Social Security office.

    • Hi Geza: The standard Medicare Part B premium for medical insurance in 2018 is $134.00.

      Some people who collect Social Security benefits and have their Part B premiums deducted from their payment will pay less. This is because their Part B premium increased more than the cost-of-living increase for 2018 Social Security benefits. Social Security will send a letter to all people who collect Social Security benefits (and those who pay higher premiums because of their income) that states each person’s exact Part B premium amount for 2018.

      Since 2007, higher-income beneficiaries have paid a larger percentage of their Medicare Part B premium than most. Depending on their income, these higher-income beneficiaries will pay premiums that amount to 35, 50, 65, or 80 percent of the total cost of coverage. You can get details at Medicare.gov or by calling 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) (TTY 1-877-486-2048).

  84. I tried to call about my Medicare Premium Bill, but I was told there was an hour wait. Can’t do that because I’m a fulltime caretaker for my husband. Is there any way to resolve this online?

  85. I am trying to make automatic payments for my medicare benefits and cannot from this information figure out how. I waa recently in the hospital for a while and I am not sure if I am due a payment. Please help me.

    Sincerely
    Don Sutton

    • Hi Don. If you get Social Security, Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) or Civil Service benefits, your Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) premiums will get deducted from your benefit payment.

      If you don’t get Social Security payments, RRB, or Civil Service benefits, you’ll get a bill called a “Medicare Premium Bill” (CMS-500). Medicare offers four ways to pay your Medicare bill.

      If you have specific questions about your bill or the status of your Medicare coverage, call our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY: 1-800-325-0778). Representatives are available Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

  86. First Time Medicare premium payment. No way to make electronic payment. I travel a lot and use my computer. I have first 4 month payment due. Can you give me a way to pay electronically.
    Lance W. Beem

  87. Can the SSA website document to which month the medicare premium deduction on a social security benefit check applies? If your social security benefit is in May and your check for that benefit arrives in June, is the deduction on that check for May, June or July?

    Please do not refer me to the 800 SSA help line as the agents were not helpful and frankly clueless providing unrelated social security benefit information.

    When transitioning from direct pay to the deduction method, inquiring minds want to know. This should be clearly documented given no further quarter premium states are delivered nor is there an online billing interface on the SSA or medicare websites.

    • If you use the SSA chat interface, you can request a callback in 15 minutes. Many questions will be answered by that agent instead of waiting the one hour or more by calling SSA directly via their 800 number.

      In my case, the answer was the medicare premium deduction on the retirement benefit check applies to the month that the check is received. For example, if your benefit is for October and you get paid in November as per the usual next month payment process, the deduction on that check also applies to November. The email interface I’ve used before and no response was forthcoming.

      I asked that this be documented on the SSA.GOV website and the agent forwarded the request.

  88. How do I find out what my Medicare premium payments are for the whole year and when they are due so I can set them up to be paid automatically when they are due via my online banking bill payer? You make it so hard to find out what my payments are and when they are due every year.

    • Hello Tom. Unfortunately, and because of security reasons we do not have access to personal records in this blog and cannot provide specific information on the amount of your Medicare premium payments. Please call our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213 for assistance. Representatives are available Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Generally, you will have a shorter wait time if you call later during the day or later in the week.

  89. I am a federal retiree under the old system CSRS. I just received a quarterly bill for medicare part b prem. I called medicare to request a monthly bill instead of a quarterly one, my request was submitted and was told that I would receive an answer to that request by phone in approx. 7 days. OPM says I need to request my part b cost be taken out of my annuity payment and medicare tells me it will be done automatically. My quarterly bill says it is due this month…what I am I supposed to do?

  90. I turned 65 8-21-2018 on 9-21-2918 was one month on 10-21-2018 is two months And I’m been billed 530.00 dollars, for what. I can’t pay 530.00 dollars. I’ve talked to your billing department when it was 670.00 dollars I could not pay that amount so why do you think I can pay 530.00 dollars.
    Thank you,

  91. Hi, My name is Hashem Dardashtian

    My monthly medicare premium is automatically taken out from my account. Now I like to give you a new checking account to withdraw from there. I called Medicare and they said I have to ask social security . I’m on the phone over 50 minuted with social security and I still was not able to get anyone on the phone. I appreciate your help.

  92. What form do I need to stop Medicare Part B deductions? I now how a job with health benefits and no longer need Medicare Part B.

    • Hi, Kathleen. Our policy requires, when possible, that a personal interview be conducted with everyone who wishes to terminate their Medicare Part B benefits. We can help you submit the required Form “CMS-1763/Request for Termination of Premium Hospital and /or Supplementary Medical Insurance”, or your signed request for termination. However, we need to speak to you personally before we terminate your Medicare benefits to be sure that you fully understand the consequences of doing so. Therefore, we do not offer Form CMS-1763 online. You can contact your local Social Security office for further assistance. Thanks!

  93. I would like to receive monthly billing instead of quarterly and would also like to pay through Bill Pay from my bank. How do I switch from quarterly to monthly. I d not want automatic withdrawals taken from Medicare. I want to control when to pay within the pay period through Bill Pay. Thank you.

  94. How do I go about getting Medicare Part B and having the Monthly Premium deducted from my Monthly Social Security Check?

    • Hi Robert. Generally, individuals receiving Social Security benefits are automatically enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B.

      If you are at least 64 years and 9 months old and aren’t receiving Social Security benefits, you can apply for Medicare A and B online.

      If you already have Medicare Part A and need to sign up for Medicare Part B, there are some forms that you will need to complete. See our Frequently Asked Questions web page for details.

      If you get Social Security, Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) or Civil Service benefits, your Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) premiums will get deducted from your benefit payment. If you don’t get Social Security payments, RRB, or Civil Service benefits, you’ll get a bill called a “Medicare Premium Bill” (CMS-500). Medicare offers four ways to pay your Medicare bill.

  95. After I retired, company pays any medical expense up to $3,000, but receipts are required, so how do I get Medicare receipt every year I pay? Thank you very much.

    SeeKee Lee

  96. Please tell me how to switch my medicare payment from directly taken out of my check to me paying the bill separately?

  97. I will have Medicare since December 2018. But my full retirement will be one year later. How should I pay for Medicare Part B for the next year ?

  98. I received a paper statement/bill from CMS for my Part B premiums (start enrollment Dec, 2018). It did not, however, include the IRMAA amount which I can calculate on the table I got separately. So, this bill is not the current Monthly amount and I reluctant to use it for my initial payment – advise please.
    ALSO, that bill was for the first 3 months Dec, Jan, Feb which is more than I can pay at once – advise please
    CK

  99. I am having too many problems with Medicare and Social Security. I made the mistake of setting up “easypay.” I wanted to have my monthly payments taken out of my personal checking account. Instead and without my authorization to do so, I was set up to have my payments taken out every 2 months. Also, I never received any written notification stating that the so-called “easypay” had even been set up! Also, my so-called “Welcome to Medicare” physical exam has become a nightmare! The facility that my doctor uses for test results had their claim denied. Now I have to file a “payment reconsideration” form and supporting documents to hopefully have the facility’s bill paid which is in the sum of $1,324.00+. Otherwise, the facility is going to mess up my credit if I cannot afford to pay it! Medicare and Social Security are horrible in my opinion!

  100. I believe Social Security and Medicare should be updated and accepted premium payment online or through phone calls. All credits cards, utilities, and other bills can be paid online or through the phone. Hardly anyone uses checks anymore and sometimes the bank bill pay is very slow.
    Please consider joining 2018 bill pay!

  101. I have a new medicare advantage plan with drug coverage included. The ” New Benefit Amount ” statement I received does not reflect the new plans cost.
    It appears that the old plan and the separate drug coverage are still being deducted. What do I need to do to resolve the discrepancy ? Thank You.

  102. Your websYour website does not work and it takes an hour or more to talk to a representaive on the phone. You must be kidding. You don’t recognize my SSN? You locked my account for what when I tried to create an account? I can’t even make an appointment at my local SS office

  103. I am dropping my Part D medicare plan with Silver Script and switching to a United Advantage plan starting January 1, 2019. I want to make sure my current plan does not take the Jan. 2019 payment out of my checking account. Silver Script said I have to contact Social Security. Please help.

  104. How do I have my monthly premium automatically withdrawn from my checking account without having to set it up through my bank’?

  105. Can I pay my premium Plan B – online or a contact
    where I can pay with my credit card?? Payment is due tonight!!!

  106. 1. Online bill-pay link does not work.

    2. I need to know where I can write or where online I can get help by chat or email on understanding the bill. I just started part B in September and you’ve billed me for over $800! Since that amount appears to be coverage through February, I need know if I can pay the part through December and the rest in January. I was not notified about this huge bill coming.

    3. My joint income with my wife was dramatically lower in 2017 than 2016. My premium is based on 2016. When can I request that it be recalculated based on 2017 tax return?

    Again, I do want an address I can write to either electronically or by mail, because it’s not easy for me to come into a SS office.

  107. I have not yet received my Medicare bill for the month of January 2019. My bills usually arrive by the 10th of the month. How can I find out the amount of my latest bill?H as my bill been lost in the mail?

  108. To accurately report my Soc Sec deductions from my monthly payment, I need the monthly amount deducted for Medicare plan B and plan D.

  109. I want to set up online payment for Medicare. I do not want automatic deductions. Please explain how to make single payments and how to review my bill. I have Part A and Part B. I have yet to receive a paper bill for the first quarter of 2019.

  110. For 15 years, my Part D Premiums (Prescription Drug Coverage) has been deducted from my Social Security each month. Has this been discontinued? If so, why?

  111. I am being overcharged for my Medicare benefits. I want to make an appointment to be seen so I don’t have a 2-3hour wait at the local office

    I see no way to make an appointment.
    When I call the phone number I wait for hours on hold

    Would like help

    Thank you

  112. we received a letter for my husbands medicare premium bill dated 11-27-2018…however we received the letter 12-21-18 with payment being due 12-25-18!!! 4 days to make payment… Why. Not feasible at this time. However my husband will be receiving Social Security benefits in February 2019. Is it possible to make only one or two months payment.?
    Daniel W. Anderson SS number 474609949 tried calling an hour wait time…don’t have that kind of time to wait

  113. Just a note to ensure it is recorded that I am trying to contact SSA and/or Medicare reference my 1st Medicare billing that I received Dec 22, 2018. I am on the phone calling, but the voice message wait announcement says my wait will be 1 hour 30 minutes.
    I signed up for SS benefits to start Dec 2018. I turned 65 recently and as such my Tricare Retireee program is ending Dec 31st and I was required to sign up for Medicare Part A and B in order to transfer to the FEDVIP program. I signed up for both A and B to start 1 Jan, 2019.
    I received a bill from Medicare on Dec 22, 2018. It is marked “Part B First Bill” The billing statement shows that my monthly Part B premium is $135.00/month. It also states that the amount owed is $540.50, and is to be paid in full no later than Dec 25, 2018 (yes, only 3 days to pay, and on Christmas day!.) I tried to call the number provided on Saturday 22 Dec, 2018 but the SSA offices were closed. I am calling now, and have been on hold for over 30 minutes, with another hour to go according to the voice that keeps coming on my phone.
    Anyway, when I signed up for SSA the representative helping me asked I I wanted my Medicare premiums taken from my monthly SSA entitlement. I said yes and it was set up to be an automatic withdrawal of $271.00 in Jan 2019,(the first 2 premium payments) and $135.50/month thereafter.
    So my obvious questions are
    a) Why am I being billed $540.50?
    b) Why do I only have 3 days to pay my bill?
    c) Why isn’t my auto withdrawal in effect?

    I hope to be able to resolve this issue quickly.

  114. Hi Ray,

    I DO NOT NEED MEDICARE. I mailed a detailed letter to my local SSA office on November 7, 2018 and again on December 20, 2018, stating I DID NOT want Medicare enrollment because I already continue to have, and have had for many years, full hospital, medical, drugs, vision, and hearing coverage through my spouses employer which has a few hundred employees. I also filed this online.

    However, SSA still deducted the $134 medicare premium from my monthly social security retirement benefit on December 26, 2018. How can I stop this and get a refund? Thanks.

  115. I would like for your department to send m a copy of the letter that was sent to me in November/December, 2018 regarding “how much Social Security Will I Get” including the table of “How we figured your income related monthly adjustments amounts”. I misplaced the original one sent to me.

    Thank you.

  116. I have just signed up for Medicare A & B. I am not drawing SS as yet. Would like to find out if I can pay my Part B online. Please Advise.

    thank you!

  117. My husband hasn’t received his quarterly Medicare billing yet which is due the end of January 2019. He has an on line account so he can see his social security amounts he can receive when he retires, but he hasn’t yet.
    How can I find it online? I like dropping off the payment at the SS office in my town.

  118. I am trying to get a list of all my medicare premiums i paid from January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018. I need it to get reimbursed from my health care account

  120. Can SSA make it easier to set-up payments for Medicare premiums through ones personal bank account to allow for automatic payments?

    Although I have an advanced degree, I have been having difficulty doing this, so I can just imagine how others, with less academic training, are doing with this system. This is a puzzle, and it shouldn’t be one. (NOTE: I just received a telephone call from the “help center” & the gentleman helped guide me to another website & transferred me to Medicare.gov. Thank God for this helpful person!).

    Please consider this problem, which can be easily resolved with a link to the Medicare.gov website for the service sought. Thank you.

  121. Since I don’t plan to receive Social Security until age 70, I have been trying to set up Easy Pay in order to have the premiums deducted directly from my checking account. When I took the Authorization Agreement for Preauthorized Payments into my bank (Bank of America) for their signature, they refused to sign it due to liability issues. I have been a customer of theirs for years, if not decades. Any suggestions?

  122. Hello, what is the Medicare banks routing # for online payment transfers from my bank. I must have this to set up the account with my bank.

  123. I can only pay monthly, but I keep getting 3-4 month bills. I do not want to lose my Medicare Is there anything you can do to assist me?
    I just can not afford that much at one time. I am able to pay $200.00 today.

  126. Hi I Hi I Hi I I am a Social Security and Medicare benefits recipient. Last year I had closed some bank accounts with tax deferral provisions and my total tax income last year (2017 ) became higher than my usual annual amount. I am Consequently the monthly Medicare payment amount shot up to $189.60 per month. Can you please inform me of the steps I need to take to get it reduced to my normal payment level ( i.e. the forms and information etc. ).
    Thanks for your time.
    Sincerely
    Harjinder Singh Dhaliwal

    • Harjinder, You need to speak to SS about their IRMAA policy and how it increases your Medicare premium due to an “income adjustment” based on their income level table. You can file an appeal for a limited set of circumstances. The IRMAA provision charges higher-income Medicare recipients more premium to subsidize lower-income Medicare/Medicaid recipients. It is calculated every December and stays in effect throughout 2019, until it is re-evaluated again in December. I think the Medicare premium caps somewhere in the $600/month range, outrageous! Good luck!

  127. If paying on line from my bank, do I use my new medicare number? The on line payment software questions the new number when I try to change from the old.

  128. I was told that the premium for part B would be deducted from my benefit payment, but yesterday I received a bill in the mail for the same months.

    I don’t understand…

  129. My Part B premium has always been deducted from my monthly SS benefit payment. SSA has overpaid my benefits so is withholding my entire benefit for most of 2019 so presumably the Part B premium will not be able to be withheld. Will I be billed directly by Medicare or ???

  133. Help. I find it difficult to get information from your website.
    1. I need to know is how to enroll for Medicare Part A when I already have Medicare Parts B and C, and how to pay the premiums for all. I have searched the website for nearly an hour.

    2. I have forgotten all my online account information including security questions so cannot log on as information does not match, and that is a problem!

    3. Further I no longer use the email I used when I first set up the online account so that is another problem.

    Maybe I am doing something wrong. Your guidance please.

  137. Did not receive a benefit payment due to insufficient IRMAA deductions from previous years. On-line My SSA site shows no entry for this month. Bank shows no deposit this month. How can we obtain a detailed statement showing benefit payment, Medicare Part B and D deductions, IRMAA deductions, and Taxes withheld by month. Also, how can we obtain the detailed calculation of how the past due IRMAA amount was calculated. While working we got pay stubs showing the details. We are unable to get this information for social security payment.

  138. I have a question. I have recently started taking SS benefits. My husband is now receiving 1/2 of my PIA. He has been paying his medicar B through his office since he turned 65 three years ago. Should he continue to do that or should it just be taken out of the check coming in each month? Does CMS have a record of payments made? Other than the retro checks the first actually SS benefits check wont be paid until April…..will his Medicar B start to be deducted then?

    • Hi, Grace. For your husband’s security, we do not have access to private information in this venue. We ask that members in our Blog community to work with our offices with specific questions.

  139. I OWE $480 OR $440. I DO NOT HAVE IT ALL AT THIS TIME. CAN I GET SET UP A PAYMENT PLAN. I HAVE $200 THAT I WOULD LIKE TO PAY AT THIS TIME.

  140. I need to change how I am billed for medicare part B
    It is now quarterly, but I want to do it monthly. Have tried calling and kept on hold forever.

  141. I wrote and complain here before and never got a response. I signed up for Medicare 2 weeks before the start of the month I turned 65. I am working and have great insurance. I never would have signed up but for the threats that I will have to go 6 months without any coverage. I called someone at Social Security and now wish I had her name rank and serial number. She said she canceled it and now I have abbill for 4 months of Part B, to pay at the end of the month. I do not intend to pay it, I canceled it! Why would I want to start paying over double for my health insurance? I ask you!. I cancel before April 1st and my birthday was on the 6th.

  142. I recently enrolled in Medicare. I received a bill for Medicare Part B and have a payment due date of 4/25/2019. However, I am still employed and have Medical Insurance through my employer. Can I cancel Part B until I retire, then re-enroll? What is the process?

    • Hi, Wendell. Hi. Generally, if you or your spouse are still working and are covered under a group health plan based on that employment, you don’t need Medicare part B until you stop working or drop your health care coverage. However, you should speak to your personnel office, health benefits advisor, or health plan to see what’s best for you. To read more about whether you need Medicare Part B, click here. If you wish to terminate your enrollment, a signed request for termination and a personal interview is required. You will have to go to your local Social Security office. Hope this helps!

  143. If I sign up for Social Security at 65, but still keep my employers health insurances, do I still pay Medicare premiums?

    • Hi George. Generally, if you or your spouse are still working and are covered under a group health plan based on that employment, you should sign up for Medicare but you don’t need Medicare part B until you stop working or drop your health care coverage. However, you should speak to your personnel office, health benefits advisor, or health plan to see what’s best for you. To read more about whether you need Medicare Part B, click here.

  144. I have been waiting for my social security card for over 10 business days. I paid 46.00 to recieve it. I’d like a refund if im not going to recieve it.

    • Hi Jennifer, thank you for using our blog. The Social Security Administration does not charge for a replacement social security card. We recommend you only obtain a replacement if you need one. You will rarely need to show it. Knowing your Social Security number is what is important. However, if you must get a replacement card, you will need to gather documents proving both your identity and citizenship status. To see if you’re eligible to apply for a replacement Social Security card online and to learn more on the process and what documents you will need to get a card, visit our Social Security Number and Card web page.

  145. I just want to pay off my budget bill , and it is what I owe from being paid an over payment. …While working in 2015…… NOT. Medicare. Related…

    • Hi Linda. If you get Social Security, Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) or Civil Service benefits, your Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) premiums will get deducted from your benefit payment. If you don’t get Social Security payments, RRB, or Civil Service benefits, you’ll get a bill called a “Medicare Premium Bill” (CMS-500).
      Normally, if your premium is late, you’ll get a second bill-notice reminding you to pay your premium. Visit http://www.medicare.gov for more information. If you have specific questions about your bill or the status of your Medicare coverage, call our toll-free number at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY: 1-800-325-0778). Representatives are available Monday through Friday, between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. We hope this helps.

  147. I need to fill out a CMS-1763 form to withdraw premium payments for Medicare part B. I believe the amount now charged is $135.00/month approximately. How can I get this form to fill out?

    • Hi Warren. If you wish to terminate your Medicare enrollment, we will help you submit a signed request for termination or Form CMS-1763. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requires, when possible, a personal interview be conducted with everyone who wishes to terminate entitlement. Therefore, we do not offer form CMS-1763 online. For an interview, you can call us at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday or go to your local Social Security office. We hope this helps.

  148. How high can your gross income be before your medicare medical insurance is raised above $135.50 each month .

    • Hi, Richard. Thanks for your question. To determine if you’ll pay higher premiums, Social Security uses the most recent federal tax return the IRS provides to us. If you must pay higher premiums, we use a sliding scale to make the adjustments, based on your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI). Your MAGI is your total adjusted gross income and tax-exempt interest income. If you file your taxes as “married, filing jointly” and your MAGI is greater than $170,000, you’ll pay higher premiums for your Part B and Medicare prescription drug coverage. If you file your taxes using a different status, and your MAGI is greater than $85,000, you’ll pay higher premiums. For more information, check out our publication, Medicare Premiums: Rules for Higher-Income Beneficiaries. We hope this helps.

  149. I see that I was approved.

    So when will I receive a billing? And is it preferable to use bill pay with my bank or an automatic ACH debit against my checking account pay for my Medicare premium.

    • Thank you for your question, Francisco. The earliest age your spouse can get Medicare Part A and B is at age 65, unless your spouse qualifies while getting Social Security disability benefits. If your spouse is already getting Social Security retirement benefits, your spouse will be enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B automatically. You can learn more about Medicare enrollment here. We hope this helps.

  162. I turn 65 this year but do not want to collect social security until I reach full retirement age which will be in October 2020. Do I wait until next year to sign up for social security or do I sign up now and ask that it be deferred until 2020

    • Hi, Claryllie. Eligible individuals can start receiving retirement benefits as early as age 62, but if you decide to start receiving benefits after your full retirement age, it may result in larger benefits. You earn delayed retirement credits automatically when and if you delay getting your benefits up until age 70. The benefit increase no longer applies when you reach age 70, even if you continue to delay taking benefits. Also, keep in mind that if you work and are full retirement age or older, the amount you make at work will not affect your Social Security benefits, no matter how much you earn. Please bear in mind that the decision on when to apply for benefits is a personal one. We can only provide you with the information to help you make the best choice according to your own situation.
      To help you plan, you can use our online calculators. Also, you can create a personal my Social Security account to verify your earnings, and get a copy of your Social Security Statement.
      Our system is set up to take applications four months in advance, and when you’re ready, you can apply for your benefits online. If you need further assistance call our toll-free number, 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) and ask to speak with one of our representatives, who are available Monday through Friday between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. We hope this information helps!

  177. If I have to enroll to Medicare, how much will that cost me until I turn 66 and one month? FYI: I am covered under my husband’s health insurance he receives from the State of Alaska, Atena.

  178. I changed the status of my medicare from part b to part a only (I use the veterans health center). I did this and sent a letter back in 2017 (Jan). A few months ago I called and asked SSA what happened (my wife told me they’re still taking Med B deductions). The official told me no change happened. She said she will make the change notification date 01/01/2017 and for me to mail in the letter I sent in 2017 and that will be reimbursed to that date. I did that and the status did change, the deduction stopped but I did not receive reimbursement. Please rectify.

    for now I am not returning to USA.

We ask that members in our Blog community work with our offices with specific questions. You can call us at 1-800-772-1213, Monday through Friday, between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., for assistance.

  182. I spoke with a representative as I am being billed for B benefits and I have not signed up for them but received one check at age 62 from social security but immediately returned to work as an RN and do not want B. I pay for insurance for my husband and myself. The rep I spoke with, Priscilla, said I could print off the 1763 form to terminate B and stop being billed (I turn 65 on 01/01/2020) as I intend to keep working and paying for insurance. I am not finding a way to print the 1763 form off!!

  183. How is it possible that I can not pay a Social Security overpayment back on line? The SS website has no information on this and it was impossible to figure out where to go on the site. I am trying to pay you back! Calling to make the payment has resulted in 12 calls where I can not speak to anyone to make the payment but instead, go thru the phone tree to get to elevator music, then recording saying all agents are busy and hangs up.

  184. I retired in 2009 from working at the VA. I did not get Medicare at the time.
    I want to know what it would cost me now to apply for Medicare. I have and will keep my Blue Cross of Florida as my secondary insurance.
    How would I go about making the change. I do not want to lose my Florida Blue Cross

  185. Please, I need to be reimbursed for the double payments made during 2018 for Medicare Part D to WellCare Value Scripts PDP. The refund owed to me is $116.90.

  186. You made a mistake on my deductions. Your’re charging me $39.20 for Part D for 2020–the premium for Silverscript, which I no longer have. The new premium should be $19.40 for my NEW supplier Anthem Medi-Blue Rx Enhanced.

    This is NOT an appeal. Please just correct the mistake you made.

    Thanks.

  187. There is a clerical error on the 2020 benefit statement I received.

    I have changed Part D insurance companies. Silverscript (CVS) doubled my cost for 2 generic maintenance drugs from $820 to $1595 for the year. The premium for 2020 was going to be $39.20. My new insurance Anthem MediBlue costs $600 a year with a premium of $19.40.

    However, Social Security is going to charge $39.20 (CVS’s rate), not $19.40. I don’t want to pay CVS another dime, and I do NEED to pay Anthem.

    The simplest solution I see is to stop having my Part D private insurance premium deducted from my Social Security check and make a direct pay arrangement with Anthem. It would be a nightmare to try to get wrongly directed over-payments back from either SSA or CVS.

    Please advise.

    BTW thanks a bunch for the -$66.30 “raise.”

  188. Why did the premium for my medicare prescription drug plan go from $28.50 last year to $59.20 in 2020, which makes my total benefit drop next year??
