Medicare Part B (Supplementary Medical Insurance) helps cover doctors’ services and outpatient care. It also covers some medical services that Part A doesn’t cover, such as physical and occupational therapists, and home health care. This benefit may cover a portion of the cost of some medical equipment and supplies that are purchased at ACG Medical. Part B helps pay for these covered services and supplies when they are medically necessary.
Effective January 1, 2015, the Medicare Part B standard premium will be $104.90 a month. The 2015 Part B deductible amount is $147.00 a year, and each beneficiary will have an annual 20 percent coinsurance.
