AARP Medicare Part B Supplementary Premiums creep up as we pull away from 65
My own Medicare Supplementary Part B Premiums from AARP and United Heath Care go up 3.75% in the first half of 2010 and then an effective 8.1% the second half. UHC is mailing out the payment coupons starting Dec 15 but many people use automatic debits. AARP takes the calls and can tell members now their premiums for 2010. I called yesterday to see what would happen -- play Star Reporter -- be a troublemaker!
I started Medicare when I turned 65 in July 2008. Each semester my supplementary premiums have gone up about 4%.
