Medicare Summary Is A Valuable Tool To Detect Fraud
Your Medicare Summary is a valuable tool to DETECT Medicare Fraud!
A Medicare Summary Notice (MSN) is a report of doctor’s visits, services or supplies billed to Medicare in your name.
≤ It is mailed every 3 months, but you can go online to MyMedicare.gov to view your MSN 24 hours a day.
≤ It explains the charges that will be paid by Medicare and that will be paid by you or your other health insurance company.
≤ IT IS NOT A BILL — but do not throw it away!
Your MSN has four (4) sections for your Medicare Part A (hospital) and Medicare Part B (preventative) services.
It is important to read and check your MSN because it lists the medical supplies and services you received and can help you DETECT errors.
If there are supplies and services on your MSN that you do not understand, call your provider, and ask for an explanation. If they refuse or the explanation is not satisfactory, call the NYS SMP at 1-800-333-4374 for assistance.
