1 The HI and SMI deductible and coinsurance amounts begin in January unless otherwise noted. The HI and SMI monthly premium amounts were effective
in July through 1983. Monthly premium amounts begin in January in 1984 and succeeding years.
2 Premium paid for voluntary participation of individuals aged 65 or older not otherwise entitled to Hospital Insurance and of certain disabled individuals who have
exhausted other entitlement.
3 Beginning in July 1973 for the disabled.
4 Benefit not provided.
5 Professional inpatient services of pathologists and radiologists not subject to deductible or coinsurance, beginning in April 1968.
6 Beginning in April 1968.
7 Home health services not subject to coinsurance, beginning in January 1973.
8 Monthly premium for July and August 1973 was reduced to $5.80 and $6.10, respectively, by the Cost of Living Council.
9 Home health services not subjected to deductible.
10 Same as footnote 5, but only when physician accepts assignment.
11 Effective Oct. 1, 1982 professional inpatient services of pathologists and radiologists are subject to deductible and coinsurance.
12 Unlike all other years, the 1989 deductible was applied on an annual, rather than a benefit period, basis. Once the deductible was paid by the beneficiary, Medicare
paid the balance of expenses for covered hospital services, regardless of the number of days of hospitalization (except for psychiatric hospital care, which was still limited
by the 190-day lifetime maximum).
13 The coinsurance amount in 1989 was equal to 20 percent of the estimated national average daily cost of covered skilled nursing facility care, rather than 1/8 of the
inpatient hospital deductible. The beneficiary paid the coinsurance amount for the first 8 days of care in 1989, rather than for days of care 21 to 100 in a benefit period as
in all other years. Skilled nursing facility benefits were available for up to 150 days of care per year in 1989, rather than for up to 100 days of care per benefit period as in
all other years.
14 Includes the standard monthly SMI premium and a supplemental monthly flat premium under the Medicare Catastrophic Coverage Act of 1988. Amount shown is for
most Part B enrollees. Residents of Puerto Rico and other territories and commonwealths, as well as persons enrolled in Part B only, paid different supplemental flat premiums resulting in a smaller premium than that shown.
15 A reduced premium is available to individuals aged 65 or older who are not otherwise entitled to HI but who have (or who were married to, widowed from, or divorced
from a spouse for certain periods of time who has or had) at least 30 quarters of Social Security coverage. The reduced premium is $184, $183, $188, $187, $170, $170,
and $166 for 1994 to 2000, respectively.

1 Section 1905 (b) of the Social Security Act specifies the method to be used to compute the federal medical assistance percentage. From this section
the following formula is derived:
N = 3-year average national per capita personal income
S = 3-year average state per capita personal income
Federal medical assistance percentage:
State share = (S2/N2) x 45 or (45/N2) x S2
Federal share = 100 - state share with 50–83 percent limits.
2 This is the Title XXI enhanced federal medical assistance percentage rate specified in Section 2105(b) of the Act. The enhanced federal medical assistance
percentage is limited to no more than 85 percent.
3 Effective Oct. 1, 1997, through Sept. 30, 1998.
4 Effective Oct. 1, 1998, through Sept. 30, 1999.
5 Effective Oct. 1, 1999, through Sept. 30, 2000.
6 For 1998, 1999, and 2000, the values in the table were set for state plans under Titles XIX and XXI and for capitation payments and disproportionate share hospital
allotments under those titles. For other purposes, the percentage for Alaska is 52.26 and for the District of Columbia 50 percent.
7 For purposes of Section 1118 of the Social Security Act, the federal medical assistance percentage used under Titles I, X, XIV, and XVI, and Part A of Title IV will be
75 percent.
