Rates for 2021 Medicare Part A and Part B


The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have announced Medicare premium rates for 2021.  CTPF Trustees voted to provide a 60% health insurance premium subsidy in 2021. The subsidy is set annually and has been at 50% since 2015. 


Medicare Plan 2021 Cost    CTPF Subsidy amount 
Medicare Part A with 40 quarters  $0  $0 
Medicare Part A with 30-39 quarters    $259     $155.40 
Medicare Part A with Less than 30 quarters  $471   $282.60 
Medicare Part B Standard Premium     $148.50 $87.30

Members who retire with a benefit effective date of July 1, 2016, or later, are not eligible for a Medicare Part A subsidy. 

2021 Medicare Part B  

The standard premium for 2021 will be $148.50 (which includes a $3.00 service charge that CTPF does not subsidize). This is a $3.90 increase from the 2020 amount. CTPF will provide a subsidy of $87.30 per month for all qualified members. If you make Part B payments directly to Medicare, CTPF provides the subsidy by adding $87.30 to your monthly pension benefit.  

Some members are subject to IRMAA fees. CTPF does not subsidize Part B service charges, late enrollment penalties or Part B IRMAA amounts. All CTPF members receive the same Part B subsidy.
