How much is my Part D late enrollment fee?
$0.00 / Month
In addition to your monthly premium
Calculated for 0 months without coverage
Late Enrollment Penalty is calculated by multiplying 1% of the "national base beneficiary premium" ($35.63 in 2017) times the number of full, uncovered months you didn't have Part D or creditable coverage (but were eligible). The monthly premium is rounded to the nearest $.10 and added to your monthly Part D premium.
Who is affected?
You may owe a late enrollment penalty if, for any continuous period of 63 days or more after your Initial Enrollment Period is over, you go without one of these:
- A Medicare Prescription Drug Plan (Part D)
- A Medicare Advantage Plan (Part C) (like an HMO or PPO)
- Another Medicare health plan that offers Medicare prescription drug coverage
- Creditable prescription drug coverage
Dual Eligible/ Extra Help recipients are exempt.
