ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: This annual notice announces Medicare’s Hospital Insurance (Part A) premium for uninsured enrollees in calendar year (CY) 2018. This premium is paid by enrollees age 65 and over who are not otherwise eligible for benefits under Medicare Part A (hereafter known as the ‘‘uninsured aged’’) and by certain disabled individuals who have exhausted other entitlement. The monthly Part A premium for the 12 months beginning January 1, 2018 for these individuals will be $422. The premium for certain other individuals as described in this notice will be $232. DATES: Effective Date: This notice is effective on January 1, 2018. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Clare McFarland, (410) 786 6390. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES I. Background Section 1818 of the Social Security Act (the Act) provides for voluntary enrollment in the Medicare Hospital Insurance Program (Medicare Part A), subject to payment of a monthly premium, of certain persons aged 65 and older who are uninsured under the Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) program or the VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:56 Nov 20, 2017 Jkt 244001 Railroad Retirement Act and do not otherwise meet the requirements for entitlement to Medicare Part A. These ‘‘uninsured aged’’ individuals are uninsured under the OASDI program or the Railroad Retirement Act, because they do not have 40 quarters of coverage under Title II of the Act (or are/were not married to someone who did). (Persons insured under the OASDI program or the Railroad Retirement Act and certain others do not have to pay premiums for Medicare Part A.) Section 1818A of the Act provides for voluntary enrollment in Medicare Part A, subject to payment of a monthly premium for certain disabled individuals who have exhausted other entitlement. These are individuals who were entitled to coverage due to a disabling impairment under section 226(b) of the Act, but who are no longer entitled to disability benefits and free Medicare Part A coverage because they have gone back to work and their earnings exceed the statutorily defined ‘‘substantial gainful activity’’ amount (section 223(d)(4) of the Act). Section 1818A(d)(2) of the Act specifies that the provisions relating to premiums under section 1818(d) through section 1818(f) of the Act for the aged will also apply to certain disabled individuals as described above. Section 1818(d)(1) of the Act requires us to estimate, on an average per capita basis, the amount to be paid from the Federal Hospital Insurance Trust Fund for services incurred in the upcoming calendar year (CY) (including the associated administrative costs) on behalf of individuals aged 65 and over who will be entitled to benefits under Medicare Part A. We must then determine the monthly actuarial rate for the following year (the per capita amount estimated above divided by 12) and publish the dollar amount for the monthly premium in the succeeding CY. If the premium is not a multiple of $1, the premium is rounded to the nearest multiple of $1 (or, if it is a multiple of 50 cents but not of $1, it is rounded to the next highest $1). Section 13508 of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993 (Pub. L. 103– 66) amended section 1818(d) of the Act to provide for a reduction in the premium amount for certain voluntary enrollees (section 1818 and section 1818A of the Act). The reduction applies to an individual who is eligible to buy into the Medicare Part A program and who, as of the last day of the previous month: • Had at least 30 quarters of coverage under Title II of the Act; • Was married, and had been married for the previous 1 year period, to a PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 55365 person who had at least 30 quarters of coverage; • Had been married to a person for at least 1 year at the time of the person’s death if, at the time of death, the person had at least 30 quarters of coverage; or • Is divorced from a person and had been married to the person for at least 10 years at the time of the divorce if, at the time of the divorce, the person had at least 30 quarters of coverage. Section 1818(d)(4)(A) of the Act specifies that the premium that these individuals will pay for CY 2018 will be equal to the premium for uninsured aged enrollees reduced by 45 percent. II. Monthly Premium Amount for CY 2018 The monthly premium for the uninsured aged and certain disabled individuals who have exhausted other entitlement for the 12 months beginning January 1, 2018, is $422. The monthly premium for the individuals eligible under section 1818(d)(4)(B) of the Act, and therefore, subject to the 45 percent reduction in the monthly premium, is $232. III. Monthly Premium Rate Calculation As discussed in section I of this notice, the monthly Medicare Part A premium is equal to the estimated monthly actuarial rate for CY 2018 rounded to the nearest multiple of $1 and equals one-twelfth of the average per capita amount, which is determined by projecting the number of Medicare Part A enrollees aged 65 years and over as well as the benefits and administrative costs that will be incurred on their behalf. The steps involved in projecting these future costs to the Federal Hospital Insurance Trust Fund are: • Establishing the present cost of services furnished to beneficiaries, by type of service, to serve as a projection base; • Projecting increases in payment amounts for each of the service types; and • Projecting increases in administrative costs. We base our projections for CY 2018 on—(1) current historical data; and (2) projection assumptions derived from current law and the Mid-Session Review of the President’s Fiscal Year 2018 Budget. We estimate that in CY 2018, 50,295,843 people aged 65 years and over will be entitled to (enrolled in) benefits (without premium payment) and that they will incur about $254.518 billion in benefits and related administrative costs. Thus, the estimated monthly average per capita E:\FR\FM\21NON1.SGM 21NON1
