I had posted a few weeks ago about how Social Security is making me pay back Medicare premiums to March of this year. I had gotten several different answers from them about how to get the premiums back. The final answer came today at my appointment. I cannot get the premiums back - I have to pay for it even though I couldn't use it. If I were to opt out, I couldn't get back in until next year and would have to pay an extra premium. I think this is terrible but there is nothing I can do. Let this serve as a warning for anyone getting back pay.
