Part B deductible & coinsurance
2017 will bring a raise to the Part B Medicare deductible. It is going up to $183 per CY from $166 in 2016. Remember the 2% sequestration deduction from Medicare payments continues to be in effect until our new Administration can bring this to President Trump’s attention to change it. Stay tuned.
