Medicare and Social Security updates for 2024

The government recently announced the updates to Social Security and Medicare for 2024.  For next year, Social Security checks will increase by 3.2%.  Medicare Part B’s premium will increase to $174.40, up $9.80 from 2023. Additionally, the Part B deductible will increase by $16 to $240 per year. 

The Medicare Part D, Prescription coverage, deductibles, and coverage limits are also updated annually.  Not all Part D plans have a deductible but the highest deductible possible is $545 in 2024.  There are improvements to prescription coverage, for anyone on very expensive medications the costs of prescriptions in the Catastrophic phase of prescription coverage will drop to $0 for the remainder of the year.  


Anyone who's income in 2022 was above $103,000 if filing taxes individually or above $206,000 in filing a joint return will pay an additional cost for Medicare called IRMAA (Income Related Monthly Adjustment Amount).  The cost of both Medicare Part B and Part D are adjusted based on which of 6 income brackets you fall within.
