What does the letter after my Medicare number mean?

Published on 2011-11-09 14:50:28Category: General Medicare

We have been getting more questions from people asking what the letters mean in their Medicare claim number.  Here is an explaination and chart of the letter meaning provided by the Social Security Administration:

The Social Security number followed by one of these codes is often referred to as a claim number.  Social Security assigns these codes once you apply for benefits.  These letter codes may appear on correspondence you receive from Social Security or on your Medicare card.  They will never appear on a Social Security card.

For example, if the wage earner applying for benefits and your number is 123-45-6789, then your claim number is 123-45-6789A. This number will also be used as your Medicare claim number, once you are eligible for Medicare.
