    There are two main expenses you're responsible for in Medicare Part B - the monthly premium ($104.90 for those with incomes of $85,000 or less, or $170,000 or less for those married filing jointly on their tax returns. The premium is higher if you're above these income levels) and the deductible.

    I believe you're referring to the Medicare Part B deductible. The deductible for 2014 is $147 (no change from 2013).

    Original Medicare (Parts A & B) takes care of approximately 80% of the cost for your healthcare. A medicare supplement is great to add to Original Medicare for those on a fixed income as it can help take care of the other 20% and create a much more predictable expense structure for your healthcare.
