How To: Access Your Medicare Claim Number Online

First thing’s first: what is a Medicare Claim Number? Your Medicare Claim Number is the mix of letters and numbers on the front of your Medicare card.  If you have Original Medicare, you use this card to file all Part A and Part B claims.  

But over the years, I’ve known plenty of people who misplace their Medicare card. But don’t stress: you can still quickly and easily access your Medicare Claim Number to show proof of coverage. 

You can access your Medicare Claim # very easily via your My Social Security online account at or  If you haven’t created an account yet, please do this first.

You can print the letter or even save it as a PDF document for easy access anytime without having to go online.
