Check the status of a claim

To check the status of Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) or Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) claims:

  • Log into (or create) your secure Medicare account. You’ll usually be able to see a claim within 24 hours after Medicare processes it. 
  • Check your Medicare Summary Notice (MSN) . The MSN is a notice that people with Original Medicare get in the mail every 3 months. It shows:
    • All your Part A and Part B-covered services or supplies billed to Medicare during a 3-month period
    • What Medicare paid
    • The maximum amount you may owe the provider
