AARP's Medicare Question and Answer Tool

How much is the late enrollment penalty for Part A?

 

En español | If you aren’t eligible for premium-free Part A, and you don’t buy it when you’re first eligible, your monthly premium may go up 10 percent. You’ll have to pay the higher premium for twice the number of years you could have had Part A, but didn’t sign up.
