How Much Does Part A Cost?

For the majority of Medicare recipients, Part A has no premium. If an individual has established 40 quarters of employment over a period of ten years, while contributing to the Medicare tax, the premium is waived. If an individual only contributes to Medicare Taxes for 30-39 quarters, they may purchase Part A for $259 each month. If an individual contributed towards Medicare Taxes for less than 30 quarters, they may purchase Part A for $471 each month.​​​​

What Other Costs Are Associated With Part A?

Medicare Part A does have a few out of pocket costs. As of 2022, the Part A deductible is $1,556, which covers you the first 60 days after being admitted as an inpatient. After the 60th day, the daily copay is $389. After the 90th day, the daily copay is $778 until the 60 reserve days are exhausted. After this, all remaining costs fall to the beneficiary.
