In years when COLA falls to zero, as in 2015, the Medicare-free provision requires Medicare to claim proportionally higher premiums for those who are not eligible for provision protection. When COLA goes up, there is nothing to prevent Medicare`s Part B premiums from rising in tandem. The protection of agreements depends on the jurisdictions in which they are carried out. In some cases, the agreements protect a contractor from the demands of companies or companies that are not part of the agreement. “The contractor undertakes to provide the owner and the contractor acting as an independent contractor to the owner.” Each county may need a particular language to address the above issues, so be sure to check the validity of your clause and your contractual language. This unfounded provision is an important tool to avoid financial hardship for Social Security beneficiaries on Medicare. But it doesn`t work as well as a lot of people think it should. Unfortunately, limiting Medicare premium increases to the percentage of Social Security COLAs would be much more burdensome for Medicare`s financial viability, and therefore it is unlikely that retirees will change in this direction in the near future. As there was no COLA in 2016, the vast majority of beneficiaries – more than 70% – were “safe.” This meant that they continued to pay the standard premium of $104.90 in 2015. Others, who were not considered harmless, generally paid $121.80 per month for Part B. With this year`s COLA, in 2017, the more than 70% of security beneficiaries will increase their premiums by about $4 to about $109 per month. Premiums for the remainder will increase to 134 $US.
