The original Medicare A and B benefits are updated every January. The benefits do not change drastically from year to year but they usually increase slightly . The changes are made areas such as the Medicare Part A Inpatient Hospital Deductible, daily skilled nursing home copy, annual Medicare part B deductible, etc…..
The changes have an effect on those that use original Medicare only or original Medicare and a Medicare Supplement plan with a cost share. This does not effect those with a Medicare advantage plan or a Medicare Supplement that covers 100% of cost share such as supplement plan F or J.
