You’re probably wondering how to pay your premiums. Most people do not have to pay a premium for Part A. If you’re not collecting Social Security, then you’ll have to pay your Part B premium yourself.
For those who get Social Security, automatic deduction occurs. If you receive Railroad Retirement Benefits or Civil Service benefits, your premium is an automatic deduction. They may require you to pay a bill.
If you’re entitled to Civil Service benefits but not Social Security benefits, you can choose to have your premium deducted from your Civil Service Annuity. You can also sign up for Medicare Easy Pay, which we’ll explain below.

Can You Pay Medicare Online with a Credit Card?
Yes, you can pay online through your Medicare account. You even have the option to pay with a debit or credit card. Also, you have the option to pay from a checking or savings account.
What Type of Bills Will Medicare Send?
On the “Bill” statement, if the box in the upper right corner says, “This is not a bill,” then your premium amount will be automatically deducted from your bank account each month. You don’t need to do anything.
If the box says, “First Bill,” then this is your very first bill, or you have paid your last bill in full. You need to send in a payment for the total amount shown by the 25th. (Medicare premiums are due by the 25th of the month)
If the billing date on the first bill is February 27th, send in payment by March 25th. If the box says, “Second Bill,” Medicare didn’t get dues by the date shown on the first bill. You need to send in money for the total amount shown.
If the box says “Delinquent Bill,” Medicare didn’t get the payment by the due date shown on the second bill. You need to send in a check, so you don’t lose your Medicare coverage.
If you have questions about your bill or the status of your coverage, you can call Social Security.
Your Bill from the Railroad Retirement Board
If you are getting billed from the RRB, the payment options explained on this page do not apply to you. Your or your bank must mail your premium payments to:
RRB, Medicare Premium Payments
P.O. Box 979024
St. Louis, MO 63197-9000
What is the Medicare Premium Collection Center?
If you pay Part A, B, or D premiums; then, you have a “Medicare Premium Bill.” The bill covers next month’s coverage and additional months if you elect quarterly payments. Those that pay a late enrollment penalty have a Medicare Premium Bill. Medicare sends this bill around the 10th of the month.
When you don’t pay a month, you receive a bill with two monthly billing statements. You must pay your premium to avoid a policy lapse. A policy lapse due to non-payment you may not be able to enroll in new coverage until the following the Annual Enrollment Period.
