How do I Find a Medicare Office Near Me? 

To locate the nearest Medicare office, visit the official Social Security Administration's (SSA) office locator tool. Simply enter your zip code and click "Locate" to find an SSA office that handles Medicare-related inquiries in your area.

If you prefer speaking to someone over the phone, call the Medicare provider number at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) anytime, 24/7. TTY users should dial 1-877-486-2048.

How Can I Contact Medicare By Phone?

If you require help with your Medicare queries and issues, don't be afraid to contact a customer support representative. For TTY users, a toll-free Medicare phone number is available 24/7: 1-877-486-2048. Excluding certain federal holidays, the customer support representatives are prepared to answer any questions regarding coverage for Medicare beneficiaries. 

Submit Claims to Medicare

For those who need to submit claims to Medicare, electronic submission using a provider number is the most common method; however, paper submissions are also accepted and should be mailed to the designated address. 

  • Electronic Submission: Use the website along with the provider number on your Medicare card.
  • Paper Claims: Mail completed CMS-1500 or UB04 forms to the designated claims address.

Note that processing times for paper claims may be longer than electronic submissions. For more information on submitting claims and finding resources, visit the official Medicare website.
