Medicare billing addresses vary depending on the state in which medical services are provided. Medicare includes a list of state addresses in PDF format on its website. Patients may also call 800-633-4227 for the appropriate address.
Requests for payment must be filed within a year after the medical service or product is provided. In general, the medical service provider is responsible for filling Medicare billing claims, but individuals are advised to file a claim themselves if the provider has not done so in a timely manner. The form, CMS-1490S-Patient Request for Medical Payment, and instructions for its completion are available in English and Spanish on the Medicare website. The correct address to mail the form is included in the completion instructions.
