Beneficiaries and their authorized representatives can use the Medicare toll-free contact number to get information regarding billing, expenses, medical records or payment claims. To authorize a representative to act on a beneficiary's behalf, the beneficiary must file a "Medicare Authorization to Disclose Personal Health Information."

Most account information can also be found by logging into the beneficiary's account at MyMedicare.gov. Individuals can contact Medicare by mail as well, via the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services at 7500 Security Boulevard in Baltimore, MD 21244-1850.
