Medicare Part B

What Are The Part B IRMAA Rates In 2022?

Medicare costs aren’t the same for everyone. While everyone gets the same coverage benefits with Medicare Part B, the premium costs depend on earnings as reported on your tax filings for the year 2020. Amounts are also assigned based on the tax filing status. Those who earn more will pay more. This increase is known as the Income-Related Monthly Adjustment Amount (IRMAA).

What Is The Standard Part B Premium?

In 2022, the standard Part B premium is $170.10 for these individuals:

  • Individuals earning $91,000 or less
  • Those who filed jointly with an income of $182,000 or less
  • Those who filed married and separately with an income of $91,000 or less

The IRMAA isn’t the cost of the premium, but the dollar amount added to the standard premium. 

These are the possible premium amounts you may pay and the corresponding IRMAA:

  • $238.10 (IRMAA = $68)
  • $340.20 (IRMAA = $170.10)
  • $442.30 (IRMAA = $272.20)
  • $544.30 (IRMAA = $374.20)
  • $578.30 (IRMAA = $408.20)
