New Mexico Medicare Advantage Premiums

Enrolling in a Medicare Advantage health plan does not do away with your monthly Part B premium. Social Security will continue to deduct the same amount from your check each month. Plus, depending on the Chaves County plan you choose, you may need to pay an additional premium. If you are single and earn over $85,000 per year (over $170.000 for couples) you Part B will cost a little more. You may also see a slight increase due to late enrollment. You can receive more information about Medicare premiums by calling Social Security at 1-800-772-1213.
