Woman looking up Medicare government resources

Need info about Medicare? Here are some Government Resources.

Medicare is administered by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS); a division of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS). If you’re needing information about Medicare, there are a couple key online resources for you to use:

Medicare.gov Info

Medicare.gov is Medicare’s public website, which provides detailed information such as the parts of Medicare, coverage, eligibility and costs. You can obtain the following on this website:

  • Information about Medicare health and prescription drug plans in your area, including what they cost and what services they provide.
  • Medicare-participating doctors or other health care providers and suppliers.
  • What Medicare covers, including preventive services (like screenings, shots or vaccines, and yearly wellness visits).
  • Information and forms for Medicare appeals.
  • Information about the quality of care provided by plans, nursing homes, hospitals, doctors, home health agencies, dialysis facilities, hospices, inpatient rehabilitation facilities and long-term care hospitals.
  • Other helpful websites and phone numbers.

MyMedicare.gov Info

MyMedicare.gov is Medicare’s free website that can be used to access your health information such as coverage, enrollment status and Medicare claims. On this site, you can:

  • Manage personal information (like medical conditions, allergies and implanted devices).
  • Sign up to get your “Medicare Summary Notices” (eMSNs).
  • Manage your prescription drug list and information about the pharmacy you use.
  • Search for, add to and manage a list of your favorite healthcare providers.
  • Select or change your primary doctor, who is the doctor responsible for coordinating your overall care, regardless of where you choose to get services.
  • Track Original Medicare claims and your Part B deductible status.
