How do I report a change of address to Medicare?
If you are enrolled in Medicare, it is essential that you let Medicare know if you change your address. Not only do you receive your Medicare ID card via mail, but also other important correspondence, including your quarterly Medicare Summary notes. If you’re enrolled in Medicare and need to report a change of address, there are a few ways you can go about doing so. Here are some easy steps to simplify the process.
Changing your address online
First, you’re going to need to login to your My Social Security account, whether or not you receive Social Security benefits. If you don’t already have a My Social Security account, you can easily create one. If you prefer not to create a My Social Security Account, read on.
Changing your address via telephone
Another way you can report a change of address to Medicare is by calling the Social Security Administration (SSA) directly at 1-800-772-1213 and notifying them of your change.
Changing your address in person
If you have the means of doing so, you can go to a local field office to report a change of address in person. To find the closest field office to you, visit the Social Security Office Locator.
What should I do if I know my address is going to change?
If you know your address is going to change soon, you can (and should) report your change of address to Medicare as soon as you know the new address and effective date. This will ensure that there are no delays in your receiving important information regarding your Medicare status and benefits.
