(2) Greater than $107,000 and less than or equal to $160,000;

In each year thereafter, CMS will set all modified adjusted gross income ranges by increasing the preceding year's ranges by any percentage increase in the Consumer Price Index rounded to the nearest $1,000 and will publish the amounts for the following year in September of each year.
