Costs

Medicare “Part A” benefits are financed through the Social Security (FICA) tax paid by employees/workers and employers. “Part B” coverage is optional to all beneficiaries who enroll for “Part A” coverage, and a monthly premium is charged to the enrollee. Additionally, persons (over 65 or disabled) may purchase both Parts A and B if not automatically eligible for Part A by way of some other disqualifying factor.
