Each year Medicare adjusts the Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B deductibles. These adjusts seem to reflect higher costs of providing health insurance coverage due to inflation and the rising cost of health coverage. The Medicare Part A deductible went from $1,100 to $1,132 in 2011. That is a $32 change (2.9%). The Medicare Part B deductible went from $155 to $162 in 2011. That is a $7 change (4.5%). Each year these deductibles seem to rise. Fortunately, a Medicare recipient can purchase a Medicare Supplement that will cover some if not all of these costs.
