Medicare.Gov is showing Part B premium for 2012 at $99.90 for those with individual incomes under $85,000 or joint incomes under $170,000. For those who have been frozen at $96.40 the last couple years the increase is only $3.50. Also the Part B deductible drops from $160 to $140.It appears those of us enrolled in 2010 and paying $110.50 and 2011 enrollees paying $115.40 will actually see our premiums drop to $99.90. I don't see this mentioned in the press release but it was speculated on in a reliable news story last week.Blue Cross has already told me my Part D premium is only rising $1.20. Haven't gotten their Medicare Supplement premium increase yet but overall it looks like my health insurance cost for 2012 might be pretty reasonable.
