Late Enrollment Penalty Has Begun
For the Responder, the Part D Late Enrollment Penalty begins 3 months after the end of March 2021, so July – December 2021, a total of 6 months.
The penalty will be equal to: 6 times the national average (0.34), rounded to the nearest $0.10. The CMS is keeping track of this.
We cannot do anything to fix this unless the Responder qualifies for Extra Help.
