Medicare category for higher premium for Part B and D is based on adjusted gross income and not on taxable income which makes a huge difference.

It is based on a MODIFIED Adjusted Gross Income. - They take your adjusted gross income and add back in any tax-exempt intrest income.

 

Link to Information:  SSA 2014 ed. Medicare Premiums: Rules for Higher Income Beneficiaries

 

Then you also have penalties assessed if you fail to sign up for either Part D or Part B when you are eligible and don't have other coverage that is credible.

In Florida, those with incomes under 2k a month were to have Medicaid cover Medicare premiums. The 1.5% COLA in 2014 put some of us over this line, requiring AARP to take up the slack. In review for 2015, and the 1.7% COLA, we see that AARP UnitedHealthcare HMO with Parts A and B of Medicare and a nominal mention of Part D has the premium waived (104.xx per month) for AARP members. Veterans of the "system" might question the assurance of quality care in these respects.

I have noticed that any tax increases Obama forces on us are not known to the public till the last minute. Seems like he is bleeding the (former ) middle class to give tax breaks to the very rich. No matter. both parties look out for the rich at our expense. Every year my retirement pensions are worth less and less. Getting to be a struggle just to pay my bills.

Don't rely on anonymous strangers on a forum for information like this.  Call the Social Security office.
