Once you register with Medicare.gov, this will give you access to your personal information. Once you registered, it lets you:
- Check your Medicare information, such as your Medicare claims as soon as they are processed and important Medicare-related information specific to you.
- Find your eligibility, entitlement, and preventive service information.
- Check your health and prescription drug enrollment information.
- View your Part B deductible information.
- Manage your prescription drug list and other personal health information.
- Create an “On the Go Report” that allows you to print your health information to share with your healthcare providers.
You must register first. There are a few questions they ask as you are setting up your account to verify who you are. The site is very secure and I have used it a lot. Medicare sends via USPS or via eMail your temporary password. Your password can be changed once you log in.
The only drawback that I have found with the site is that you must change your password every 60 days. I do find this annoying, but you get quick access to your information. So, I highly suggest you keep a log of some type with your username/password and the date you changed it.
Here’s a video from Medicare showing you how to register and setup your account. https://www.mymedicare.gov/Help/VirtualTour/WBT_SignIn_V2.aspx
Let’s make sure we save Medicare. Everyone on Medicare and future Medicare beneficiaries need to contact their elected officials and let them know DO NOT TOUCH MY MEDICARE.
Our voices must be heard loud and clear so our representatives will do what is best for their constituents! After all, we do pay for their life-long health care benefits.
