Paying for Medicare
You will pay for a portion of your Medicare coverage. How much you'll pay depends on the plan(s) you select and the health care you receive. Before you decide on a Medicare plan, learn how Medicare shares costs with you. Once you understand cost sharing, you can make a more informed choice and start budgeting for future expenses.
Not everyone can afford to cover Medicare costs. If you have a low income and limited assets, you may qualify for extra help. If eligible, you can get help paying your premiums, deductibles and prescription drug copays and coinsurance.
