Here’s some information on how to pay for your Part B premium when you’re not on Social Security.
4 ways to pay your Medicare bill:
Medicare Easy Pay is a free way to set up recurring payments for your Medicare premium. If you sign up for Medicare Easy Pay, your Medicare premiums will be automatically deducted from your checking or savings account each month. It can take up to 6-8 weeks for your automatic deductions to start. Until your automatic deductions start, you’ll need to pay your premiums another way (this is the 4 ways mentioned above). If you can’t process your Medicare Easy Pay request, we’ll send you a letter explaining why.
What else do I need to know about Medicare Easy Pay?
Once your Medicare Easy Pay starts, 2 things will happen each month:
If your bank rejects or returns your premium deduction, Medicare will send you a letter with instructions on how to send your payment to Medicare.
If your premium amount changes, Medicare will automatically deduct the new premium amount from your bank account.
You can pay by check, money order, credit card, or debit card. Fill out the payment coupon that comes with your bill. Payments sent without the coupon may be delayed.
If you pay by credit/debit card, enter the account information and expiration date as it appears on your card. Be sure to sign the coupon.
