GAO reviewed the Social Security Administration's (SSA) new rule on Medicare Part B Income-related monthly adjustment amount. GAO found that (1) the rule contains the rules for determining when, based on income, a monthly adjustment amount will be added to a Medicare Part B beneficiary's standard premium, and the monthly adjustment amount represents the amount of the federal government's contribution to the Federal Supplementary Medical Insurance Trust Fund; and (2) the SSA complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
