As a reminder, all retired Members and their dependents that are eligible for Medicare and enrolled in a LACERS plan are required to enroll in Medicare Part B. Retired Members enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B with at least 10 years of Service who are enrolled in a LACERS Senior medical plan or participate in the Medical Premium Reimbursement Program (MPRP) are eligible for a reimbursement of their basic Medicare Part B premium. For 2022, the standard (basic) Medicare Part B premium amount will be $170.10 per month (not including Income-Related Monthly Adjustment Amounts (IRMAAs) and late enrollment penalties).
If you are a Retiree whose Medicare Part B premium is deducted from your Social Security benefit check and it is less than $170.10 a month, you will need to submit proof of premium amount to LACERS so that your reimbursement amount can be adjusted. An audit regarding Part B reimbursements will be conducted in 2022.
NOT ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE A MEDICARE PART B PREMIUM REIMBURSEMENT
Surviving Spouses/Domestic Partners and health plan dependents are not eligible to receive a reimbursement unless they are also a Retiree with at least 10 years of Service.
Retirees enrolled only in Medicare Part B are not eligible to receive a reimbursement and do not need to submit proof of enrollment.
