According to a recent article published by the Military Officers Association of America, nearly 30% of Medicare Part B premiums will increase by 50% in 2016. This increase is due to a "glitch" in the law regarding Part B beneficiaries. The issue at hand is that the legal provision in the law holding increases below the Cost of Living Adjustments excludes "in error" a select group. The select group: those that enter the Medicare system in 2016, those that pay their premium directly as oppsoed to deducting from social security and those that are making at least $85,000 as an individual or $170,000 as a couple. Surprisingly, the most in this group are Federal Retirees under the Civil Service Retirement System (CCRS). Under CCRS, there is no Social Security Benefit and Medicare premiums are paid directly to Medicare.
