Navigating Medicare Part B requires a thorough understanding of its coverage, which includes outpatient care, doctor visits, preventive services, and more. To help you make the most of these benefits, seeking advice from a seasoned Medicare Agent is highly recommended. Below, we break down the key aspects of Medicare Part B, including deductibles, co-pays, and premiums:


  • Annual Deductible: As of the latest information, Medicare Part B comes with an annual deductible. Amount: The standard deductible for Part B is $240 per year for 2024 (subject to annual adjustments).
    Beneficiaries Responsibility: Beneficiaries are responsible for covering this amount out of pocket before Part B coverage takes effect.


  • Doctor Services: After the deductible is met, beneficiaries typically pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount for most doctor services & typically Medicare will cover the other 80% of Medicare Approved services. Outpatient Therapy: Similar to doctor services, outpatient therapy is subject to the 20% co-payment after the deductible is satisfied.
    Other Services: Co-pays may apply to other covered services, and the percentage may vary depending on the type of service.


  • Standard Premium: While most people do not pay a premium for Part A, Part B typically comes with a standard premium. Amount: The standard premium is subject to income-based adjustments but is typically $174.70 per month for those with incomes below a certain threshold.
    Income-Based Adjustments: Higher-income individuals may pay a higher premium based on their modified adjusted gross income. (Click on our "Resources page" for your free Medicare & Social Security Cheatsheet).
