Medicare has increased its annual deductible amount this year (2020).
Important to keep in mind there are several secondary insurances that do not cover the Medicare deductible amounts, so be proactive and contact your insurance to see if they will cover your Medicare deductible. If your secondary insurance does not cover the Medicare deductible, you will likely be responsible to pay toward your annual Medicare deductible when you see your health care providers this year.
