2024 Medicare Part B Costs

The standard premium for Medicare Part B in 2024 is set at $174.70.

It’s important to note that Medicare Part B pricing is determined based on your income from two years prior. Consequently, your 2024 Medicare Part B expenses will be calculated using your 2022 income tax filings. Any premium increase above the standard amount is referred to as IRMAA, which stands for Income-Related Monthly Adjustment Amount.

IRMAA represents an additional cost that some individuals may be required to pay in addition to their regular Medicare premium if their modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) surpasses a specific threshold. To ensure clarity, our chart below illustrates the total premium owed for your 2024 Medicare Part B expenses within each income bracket.
