MyMedicare.gov
Have you signed up to use MyMedicare.gov?  If not, you may want to consider doing so.  Through this web site, you can access your personal Medicare-related information.  For example, you can:
 
check to see the status of your new Medicare Card.  Look for the message, “your card is in the mail”
view information about your Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan or your Medicare Advantage Plan enrollment.
View a list of your prescription drugs.
view your Medicare Summary Notice and learn about the status of your Part B deductible, whether it has been met or not.
Plus, just as with signing up for a MySocialSecurity account, when you sign up for a MyMedicare.gov account, it keeps scammers from using your information to sign up for an account.
If you would like help signing up for a MyMedicare.gov or a MySocialSecurity account, we can help you.  Just call us at Rock River Center, 815-732-3252, or 800-541-5479.
