I understand that in 2007, those with income over $80,000 will pay a higher Medicare Part B premium. I cannot find a clear explanation, even on the Medicare Web site, whether income is defined as taxable, gross or adjusted gross. What do your experts say?
According to the Office of Public Affairs at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the premium will be based on adjusted gross income.
