NAMD Statement on 2017 Medicare Part B Premiums

NAMD released a statement today addressing the potential Medicare Part B premiums increase and possible solutions.

Medicare part B premiums are set to increase again this year and, like last year, a combination of factors will result in state Medicaid programs paying more than $2.5 billion to cover this cost for those dually eligible for both programs. This dynamic is a result of bad public policy and unless addressed quickly, will result in major negative repercussions for states and the millions of vulnerable Americans who rely on Medicaid.
