What is Medicare Part B?
  • Part B helps cover doctor and other health care providers' services, outpatient care, durable medical equipment, home health care, and some preventive services.
  • You pay a Part B premium each month.
  • A lifetime penalty may be added to your monthly Part B premium if you do not enroll when you are first eligible. 

    Note: If you or your spouse continue working after age 65 and you receive health insurance from an employer, different rules may apply. Check with your Human Resources Department for more information.
