Health Insurance Transfer period (Open Enrollment) during the month of November effective January 1, 2021

Retirees can make changes to your health benefits once every two years. For changes to be made at other times of the year, a qualifying event must occur, such as a marriage, birth, adoption, etc., or once in a lifetime. During this window, retirees may make changes to your existing health care benefits, such as transfer into any city health plan for which you are eligible, add or drop the Optional Rider, or add or drop dependent(s).

2023 Social Security Letter and IRMAA

If you collect social security or if you are eligible for Medicare, you should have received a letter from Social Security the last week of November. SAVE THIS LETTER. You are going to need it when you request your 2023 IRMAA reimbursement in 2024.

Medicare Part B Premium: Your Medicare Part B premium is divided into 2 parts: the standard amount & IRMAA (Income-Related Monthly Adjustment Amounts). Everyone who is Medicare-eligible pays the same standard amount. For 2023, the standard amount is $164.90.per month, down $5.20 from $170.10 in 2022. The Income-Related Monthly Adjustment Amounts (IRMAA) is a monthly surcharge that is deducted ONLY from those Medicare-eligible members whose taxable income (based on your 2021 income tax return) surpasses a certain threshold.

Payment of Medicare Part B Premium – Most Medicare members have their Part B premium electronically deducted from their Social Security Check. However, if you are NOT collecting Social Security (you may be waiting until you are old enough to receive full payment) you will receive a bill called “Notice of Medicare Premium Payment Due” (CMS-500).
