The biggest change Medicare’s nearly 64 million beneficiaries will see in the new year is higher premiums and deductibles for the medical care they’ll receive under the federal government’s health care insurance program for individuals age 65 and older and people with disabilities.
Medicare’s benefits will remain largely the same in 2022. As the new year begins, Congress is still debating several proposals that would change the face of Medicare, including adding a hearing benefit and several proposals to lower the price of prescription drugs, including capping out-of-pocket costs in Part D plans. But even if Congress adopts these changes, they wouldn’t take effect this year.
