What if you don’t receive any of these benefits?

If you do not receive any of these benefits, but you buy Medicare Part A, you sign up for Part B, or you owe a Part D income-related adjustment you will receive a notice of payment due called “Notice of Medicare Premium Payment Due”. You can expect to receive this bill on or around the 10th of every month. See the list of 2016 Part B premiums.
