Medicare Part D Premium based on Income
Medicare Part D Premium based on Income – 2019

The Part D monthly premium varies by plan. Most people only pay their Part D premium.

If your modified adjusted gross income is above a certain limit, you may pay a Part D income-related monthly adjustment amount (Part D-IRMAA) in addition to the plan’s premium. You’ll pay the Part D-IRMAA amount in addition to your monthly plan premium, and this extra amount is paid directly to Medicare, not to your plan.
