Money Matters: Selling stock could affect Medicare Part B and D premiums

Q. My wife and I are both 66. I have some highly appreciated stock I accumulated while employed with my former employer. I’m retired now and the stock is at an all-time high. I want to sell now but if I do I will have over $250,000 in capital gains. I have a pension of around $5,000/month and get $1,800/month in Social Security. My wife receives Social Security based on my earnings so that is another $900/month. Will the sale of this stock impact my taxes on Social Security?
