Is Medicare Part A free?

If you or your spouse have worked for at least 10 years (40 quarters) and paid Medicare taxes, you are eligible for premium-free Part A. If you have not met the 40 quarters, you can pay the Part A premium which in 2019 is $437. If you paid Medicare taxes for 30-39 quarters, the standard Part A premium is $240.
