2013 Income Related Medicare Adjustment Amounts (IRMAA) Remain Near Constant

Published on 2012-08-07 11:20:44Category: IRMAA - for Higher Incomes

Medicare Part D beneficiaries with an income above a certain level (see charts below) have an increase in their monthly Medicare Part D prescription drug plan premiums, based on the implementation of the Medicare Part D Income-Related Monthly Adjustment Amount (IRMAA) in January 2011.  For the 2013 plan year, the IRMAA will remain near constant with the 2012 figures.

Medicare beneficiaries who have a modified adjusted gross income of more than $85,000 for individuals or $170,000 for married couples filing jointly pay an additional Medicare Part D Income-Related Monthly Adjustment Amount (IRMAA) based on their income.

The IRMAA can change every year and is calculated using the recently released standard base premium.  Since the 2013 standard base premium of $31.17 is only slightly higher than the 2012 base premium of $31.08 ($32.34 in 2011), people with higher incomes will see either no increase or only a slight increase in their IRMAA payments as shown in the following table -- with the 2013 figures remaining fairly consistant with 2012 and still lower than the 2011 IRMAA firgues.

Greater than $129,000 $66.60 $66.40 $69.10


Please note:

  • The additional monthly Part D income-related adjustment amount is not collected by the Medicare Part D plans, but instead paid directly to the Federal government.
  • The amount of your IRMAA will be directly deducted from your Social Security, Railroad Retirement Board, or Office of Personnel Management benefits.
  • If there are not sufficient funds in your government benefits, then Medicare will bill you directly.
  • Medicare Part D beneficiaries affected by the 2013 IRMAA will receive a letter from the Social Security Administration notifying them of their Medicare Part D plan premium increase.
