Now's the time to create your online Medicare account! It's a secure way to access your personal Medicare information anytime.
It takes just a few minutes to create your account. Go to Medicare.gov. Always remember is Medicare.gov. The .gov insures that it is the official Medicare website. You will be prompted to login or create an account. To create your account you will need the information found on your Medicare card. You will create a user name and password for your account. Then you'll be able to:
- View your Original Medicare claims as soon as they're processed.
- Sign up to go paperless — get your yearly ''Medicare & You'' handbook and claims statements, called ''Medicare Summary Notices,'' electronically.
- Add your prescriptions and pharmacies, to better compare health and drug plans in your area.
- Print a copy of your official Medicare card.
