The Medicare Part B premium ($104.90 in 2015) is automatically deducted from your Social Security check every month. If you don't receive Social Security benefits, you will be billed for Part B. People with higher incomes (individuals with annual incomes over $85,000 and couples with incomes over $170,000) will pay higher Part B premiums.
