Medicare is a federal program that provides health coverage if you’re 65 or older, if you are under 65 and have certain disabilities, or if you have End Stage Renal Disease. In most cases it doesn’t matter what your income is unless you have earned over certain limits in the past 2 years ($87,000 annually if you file a single tax return & $174,000 annually for those filing jointly). If this applies to you please see Medicare.gov for information on the Income Related Monthly Adjustment Amount (IRMAA).
