    I don't want to jinx things for myself, but I've always gotten Medicare A and B, for free.

    Howie, that may be because you're in the QMB category. QMB = Qualified Medicare Beneficiary

    Lower-income people are in that category and don't have to pay premiums as I understand it. I'm a QMB too.

    Virginia, I don't think the Part B premium amount has been figured out yet but I'll be on the lookout for the new amount.
