Now I am 67 and want the protection. I've been told that my premium will be higher because I didn't take itatGS. Why? ANSWER: The law requires that your premium be increased by 10 percent for each full 12- month period that you could have been enrolled in Medicare's medical insurance plan but were not. This increase is not intended to penalize you but rather to take into account the higher cost of insuring you as you get older and need more health care.
