  • Hospital insurance that helps with inpatient hospital care, skilled nursing facility care (rehab only), hospice and home health care.
  • The deductible for Part A during 2019 is $1,364.
  • There is no cost for Part A if you paid Medicare taxes at least 40 quarters while working.

Part B

  • Medical insurance that helps with medically necessary doctor services and outpatient care.  Preventive services are also covered to help you maintain your health and keep illnesses from getting worse.
  • The deductible for Part B during 2019 is $185.  Medicare will pay 80% of medically necessary health care after you pay this deductible, and you will be responsible for the other 20%.

  • The cost for Part B is based on your income.  In 2019 the standard monthly premium for most people is $135.50 (see chart below). If you are not receiving your benefit, you will be billed quarterly by the SSA.
