Hi intercst!

You are forgetting the extra premiums for Part D on top of the Part A "mean-testing" premiums.

In 2012, I paid almost $8000 for Medicare-related premiums....and let's NOT forget that I paid in a whole lot more than many for more than 40 years for the "same" insurance benefits at age 65+.

Put the two together and the "tremendous bargain" begins to disappear. ;-)

Your mileage may vary.

Cheers!
