If you’re currently enrolled in Medicare, or about to become eligible for Medicare benefits, you may have questions about where to find important forms and publications about your coverage. Here are some tips and resources to help you get the information you need.

Why might I need Medicare forms?

Fortunately, most of the forms you need to manage your Medicare benefits are available online at the Medicare.gov Medicare Forms page here. You may need application forms to enroll in Medicare Part B, for example, or to get reimbursed for covered expenses and supplies you may have paid out-of-pocket. There are also forms you can use to file an appeal, share your health information with other providers and organizations, and more.

There are several useful online publications, as well, to help you navigate the Medicare program and learn how to protect yourself from health-care fraud, for example.

If you can’t find the Medicare forms or help you need on the Medicare.gov website, you can always contact Medicare directly and get help from a representative. Call them at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) (TTY users 1-877-486-2048); representatives are available to assist you 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
