In prior years, we didn't hear about changes to Medicare & Social Security until November/December for the following year.
However, on Friday 10/12/18, the Government Announced 2019 Changes to Social Security & Medicare which are summarized below.
For the Part B Premiums, Part B Income Related Monthly Adjustments, and Part D Income Related Monthly Adjustments there were also minimal increases for 2019.
Overall, this is very good news for individuals on Social Security and Medicare. The increase in the Social Security check should far outweigh the increase in Medicare costs for 2019.
