IRMAA 2019 reimbursements were issued in October 2020. Please check your bank account/statement (or the mail, if you are receiving a physical check) for your payment.
IRMAA 2019 Differential payments are scheduled to be issued by the end of November 2020.
Medicare Part B 2019 differential reimbursements are scheduled to be issued by the end of March 2021.
The City will reimburse retirees and their eligible dependents for Medicare Part B premiums paid, excluding any penalties. You must be receiving a City pension check and be enrolled as the contract holder for City health benefits in order to receive reimbursement for Part B premiums.
For most retirees, the refund is issued automatically by the Health Benefits Program. If you are currently receiving your pension check through Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) or direct deposit, your reimbursement will be deposited directly into your bank account. This will be separate from your pension payment. If you don’t have EFT or direct deposit, you will receive a check in the mail in June.
If you paid more than the standard monthly reimbursement rate for Medicare Part B, as an Income Related Monthly Adjustment Amount (IRMAA), you may be eligible for additional reimbursement. If you submit the required documentation for Medicare Part B IRMAA reimbursement, your reimbursement will be deposited directly into your bank account.
