Q: I am a retired federal employee and receive an annuity. I pay for my Medicare Part B quarterly. I would like to have this cost deducted monthly from my annuity. Is there a form to do this? If so, where can I get this form?
A: To arrange for this change, call the Medicare Administration at 1-800-633-4227 and talk to a benefits specialist.

http://www.opm.gov/retire/related/medicare/index.asp The information that you provided to have Medicare premiums withheld from federal annuities is incorrect. OPM cannot start, stop, change or refund a Medicare premium. Please DO NOT refer readers to OPM. They need to contact Medicare. Form SSA-795 might be required.

As of August 1, 2012: I just went through the process of requesting that my Medicare Part B premium be deducted from my federal annuity. The only way to get this done is to call the SSA at 1-800-772-1213. They will take your information and start the process. No forms.
