How do I report 401k withdrawals to Medicare if the IRS does not report it?


1 Answer 1


You do not need to report your income to Medicare. Medicare looks at your tax returns to calculate the income-based portion of your premiums.

As a result, if you take taxable distributions from your 401(k), then you will report this on your tax return, and if your total income is high enough, your Medicare premiums will adjust.

Non-taxable distributions (such as a Roth IRA or Roth 401(k)) do not affect your Medicare premiums.
