AARP's Medicare Question and Answer Tool

What is the premium for Medicare Part A?

 

En español | Most people don’t pay a premium for Part A because they already paid for it through payroll taxes while working. If you do not have premium-free Part A, you may be able to buy it under certain conditions. The amount of the premium you pay to buy Medicare Part A depends on the number of Social Security credits you have earned.
