You can request a new decision and ask that we use more recent tax return information if:
Once you show us evidence of the event and provide proof or an estimate of your reduced income, we will update our records and correct your Part B premiums back to the earliest time in the year you had Part B.
You can request a new decision and ask that we use more accurate tax return information if:
- You amended your tax return for the year we used to determine your premium and it changes the income we count;
- You provide proof from IRS of an error in the tax return information we used to make our decision; or
- Your tax filing status for the year we used to determine your premium was “married filing separately” and you did not live with your spouse at any time during that year.
