Generally that answer is no, you are required to pay the Medicare premium from your social security benefits.
Nothing in this response creates an attorney-client relationship. The answer is provided as general information and cannot be relied on due to the many factors that can impact any situation when all of the relevant facts may not have been included.
Call or go to your Social Security Administration office. They can check your account records and can give you a definitive answer on what is being done AND what needs to be done. They can also tell you if there is anything that can be done to help you with the payment or to lower the Medicare payment.
Speak with SSA as soon as possible and BEFORE you are in need of medical care.
