One method of making Medicare Part B payments is to have the payments deducted from the individual’s Social Security, civil service or railroad retirement board benefits, explains Medicare.gov. Those who pay Medicare directly can issue payment by check, money order, credit card or online payment methods.
If a person does not have Medicare Part B benefits that qualify for automatic deductions, Medicare issues a "Notice of Medicare Premium Payment Due" bill. In addition to using traditional payment methods, the patient may sign up to pay his bill through Medicare Easy Pay. This free service automatically deducts the premium payments from an individual’s checking account or savings every month, Medicare explains.
