Yes it is a first world problem, and while I’m very happy to have a good income and Medicare, I’ve got to admit that really deep down the IRMMA irks me a bit. Probably because when I was doing retirement planning in the 80’s and 90’s there was no IRMMA to plan for. The .09% extra Medicare tax on my income above $250,000 doesn’t bother me as much, but the IRMMA gives me an involuntary flinch. Irrational, glad to be in this situation, but it’s something I didn’t plan for.
