AARP Pleased with Decrease in Medicare Part B Premiums and Deductibles for 2023
Lower Premiums and Deductibles Will Help Seniors with Rising Costs Due to Inflation

WASHINGTON – The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released the 2023 premiums and deductibles for the Medicare Part B programs earlier today. Medicare Part B premiums will decrease by $5.20 to $164.90 next year, and deductibles will decrease $7 to $226. AARP had called for CMS to lower Part B premiums following a decline in the price and coverage of Aduhelm, which accounted for half of the premium increase in 2022.

“Today’s announcement of lower Part B premiums and deductibles is welcome news for seniors who are struggling with rising costs due to inflation,” said Nancy LeaMond, AARP Executive Vice President and Chief Advocacy & Engagement Officer. “Reducing their Medicare expenses, combined with the expected cost of living adjustment for Social Security, will provide much-needed financial relief for older Americans.”

In addition to lower Part B premiums, several provisions in the Inflation Reduction Act will go into effect in January 2023. For those enrolled in Medicare Part D, most vaccines will be covered at no cost and insulin copays will be capped at $35 per month.
