Sign Up For Paperless Medicare
Paperless Medicare will help you save time, money, and paper – benefiting you and the environment you live in!
Medicare hosts its own free and secure digital service for account management and information. It will allow you to access important data quickly, easily, and cheaply and avoid problems like lost or stolen mail. If you’re still not convinced to switch and start using this digital system, remember that it also benefits the environment. No more paper bills and notices!
The service is easy to use – clicking a big blue button will download your Medicare information. You can also access your eligibility for discounts and Extra Help as well as details about your current plan. There’s even a video to help beneficiaries like you through the process of registering and using the service.
eMSNs (Electronic Medicare Summary Notices)
The biggest draw to electronic MSNs is the shorter wait time. Normally, these notices take three months to arrive by mail, but eMSNs are always accessible online. It’s also a good way for you to keep track of older MSNs. You won’t have to search through years of paper documents or stand in line at the Social Security office to access them. Just sign up for eMSNs by logging into your My Medicare account, then click “Email and Correspondence Settings” under the “User Information” tab. Then, just opt in for electronic Medicare Summary Notices!
eHandbook and eBooks
Every fall, you should receive a physical “Medicare and You” handbook, but the information will only get more and more outdated until the following fall. With electronic handbooks, you can always check online for the most updated information. Now, you don’t have to receive the physical copy. This will save a lot of paper and government money. Just enter your information here.
