What are the IRMAA amounts for
Part D for 2019?

Higher-income beneficiaries must pay more for Medicare Part D, prescription drug coverage. The adjustments are based on a modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) determined by tax-exempt interest (line 8B on the tax statement) and the modified adjusted gross income (bottom line).

There were more changes in Income-related Monthly Adjustment Amount (IRMAA), for 2019. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) added a new top tier (level). And, the amounts decreased slightly from 2018 for the first four tiers, ranging from $0.60 to $2.60.
