I am 78 years old. I collect Social Security, and am on Medicare, and also work part time paying SS and Medicare premiums.

Since Medicare is being deducted from my SS every month, can I get refunded the Medicare premiums I am paying from my part time job?

You are not paying SS and Medicare premiums from your part-time wages; you are paying SS and Medicare taxes that are imposed on wages, and there is no way of avoiding those taxes. If your income is above a certain level, you are also paying monthly Medicare premiums that are being deducted from your monthly Social Security benefit check. You cannot get a refund of the Medicare taxes that are being withheld from your part-time wages, and you cannot get a refund of your Medicare premiums either.
