Important Information for Retirees Who Did Not Get Their Full Medicare Part B Reimbursement

May 1, 2020

If you retired prior to 2016, you may not have received the full amount for your Medicare Part B reimbursement. If so, you will have to fill out the “differential form” each year.

 

Why is it necessary to fill out the Medicare Part B Differential Form every year?

For Retirees whose Medicare Part B effective date is prior to 2016, the amount may change, because of how much a Retiree pays for his or her premiums. It could be an amount in addition to the base amount of between $1 to $26.50 per month ($12 to $318 per annum) per each individual.  Therefore, the Medicare Part B Differential Form is required so that the Office of Labor Relations Health Benefits Program processes the differential amount.
