Thanks for the explanation link (above).  I just finished calculating the Social Security increases of 2% for my wife and me, minus our new [projected] $134.00 monthly Medicare Part B premiums.  Our household net increase from 2017 moving forward amounts to $10.00 per month.

There will be increase in deductibles but not for Part B. Hospital and others increase slightly.
