If you get a Medicare-covered service, you’ll get a Medicare Summary Notice (MSN) in the mail every 3 months. The notice shows all your services or supplies that providers and suppliers billed to Medicare during the 3-month period, what Medicare paid, and what you may owe the provider. This notice isn’t a bill.
How to Review Your MSN
- If you have other insurance, check to see if it covers anything that Medicare didn’t.
- Keep your receipts and bills, and compare them to your notice to be sure you got all the services, supplies, or equipment listed.
- If you paid a bill before you got your notice, compare your notice with the bill to make sure you paid the right amount for your services.
- If an item or service is denied, call your doctor’s or other health care provider’s office to make sure they submitted the correct information. If not, the office may resubmit. If you disagree with any decision made, you can file an appeal.
