Each fall Medicare announces its deductibles and co-payments for the following year. The 2011 deductibles and co-payments have been announced. The biggest increase is an additional $32 for the hospital Part A deductible that must be paid for each hospital confinement that begins a new benefit period. The HDF and F+ high deductible amount did not change and remain at $2,000 for 2011 the third year in a row. (See Below)

These modest increases, in comparison to other things going on in the industry, further highlight that a person is generally served best by having Original Medicare and a good Plan F or High Deductible Plan F (depending on their finances and health).
