Good news for Medicare recipients! For the first time since 2000, the Medicare Part B premium will be the same in 2009 as the previous year for most seniors. Individuals making $85,000 or less or couples making $170,000 or less will pay $96.40/month. This is good news for seniors with Medicare supplement insurance since every dollar matters. Having a Medicare supplemental policy combined with Medicare Part A and Part B is a great way for senior to insure their health. Like almost everything else, premiums increase a little each year on an individual's Medicare supplemental policy so any cost savings helps. In a few weeks it will be time to take a look at Part D coverage and hope that there is some savings available there for Medigap policyholders as well as all other seniors.
