I am under total VA health care.  Why is $1755 deducted from my SS to pay for Medicare I don't use?

    $1,755?  That doesn't sound right

    Because you signed up for medicare.

    If you hadn't, you wouldn't pay this money....

    This will allow you to see healthcare providers outside the va.

    You can cancel your medicare if you want.  However, to confirm you understand what you are doing, SSA requires a phone interview:
