****MEDICARE UPDATE -  DEC 13, 2016***

Legislation to prevent a disproportionately large increase in the 2017 Medicare Part B premiums for those not held harmless failed to receive further congressional action. HR 6428, introduced by Rep. Dina Titus, D-NV, would have limited the Medicare Part B premium increase to $4 for those not held harmless and not subject to higher premiums due to higher incomes.

As you may have read in recent issues of the Postmasters Gazette and other periodicals that cover federal employee/retiree issues, CSRS annuitants enrolled in Medicare Part B are scheduled for a 2017 premium increase higher than those who participate in FERS (Social Security). This is result of a "hold harmless' provision in the Medicare law that restricts premium increases to the increase in the Social Security COLA - but only for Social Security recipients (i.e., 70% of the Medicare Part B population).  Consequently, Social Security beneficiaries would pay an extra $4/month, while those not participating in Social Security (e.g., CSRS annuitants) would pay an extra $12/month.  
                Last week, Rep. Dina Titus (D-NV) introduced HR 6428, legislation that would treat all Medicare Part B recipients similarly, with regard to 2017 premium adjustments. IMMEDIATELY: Please contact your Representatives to support HR 6428 and bring it to the floor for a vote before Congress adjourns for the year.  Capitol Switchboard: 202-224-3121   (Bob Levi 12-7-16)
