Medicare premiums rise with your income. It's $134/month if your income is $85,000/yr or less and in several steps rises to $428.60/month for those earning more than $214,000/yr.

It's a high class problem to have, but people complain bitterly about it.


I was unaware of that. I've not looked much into medicare since I'm still almost 10 years from it. Plus, DW and I look at health care a bit different than others do to our extreme healthy lifestyle. Instead of spending money on 'disease care' insurance we prefer to spend money on preventative care now.

Either way, I'm going to do my best to limit the amount of pain that extra medicare payments cause by being filthy rich by the time I'm 65. It's a first world problem.
