I recently moved to another state. How do I update my address with Medicare?
To protect you and ensure your receipt of your benefits, please let your Social Security office know that your address has changed. The number for the Social Security Administration is 1-800-772-1213.
Does Medicare Part B pay for prescription drugs?
Currently, Medicare does not include a prescription drug benefit. However, if coverage guidelines are met, Medicare allows payment for some immunosuppressive, oral, anti-emetic and nebulizer drugs. The Benefits Improvement and Protection Act of 2000 requires Medicare suppliers to accept assignment on Medicare-covered drugs.
Will Medicare call me to verify my Social Security number?
Medicare will never call to verify your Social Security number or ask any other personal questions. Please also keep in mind that the new Medicare issued cards will not have your Social Security number. If you have any questions, please call my Wilmington District Office at (937) 283-7049.
Would Medicare allow payment for a wheelchair or Power Operated Vehicle (POV)?
