If your bank offers the option to pay your bills online, you can use their service to pay for your Medicare premiums bill from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

You, or your representative, must sign up for your bank’s online bill payment process and you can contact your bank directly for assistance. Social Security and CMS are not involved in establishing the online bill pay service with your bank. Before you contact your bank to set up the process, make sure you have the following information available:

  1. Amount of your Medicare premium bill
  2. Account number: Medicare claim number without dashes. You can find this number on the red, white, and blue Medicare card.
  3. Biller name: CMS Medicare Insurance
  4. Biller’s address:

Medicare Premium Collection Center
P.O. Box 790355

You’ll need to tell the bank how much money to deduct from your account to pay for the Medicare premium. You’ll also need to update the amount with your bank whenever there is a change in the Medicare premium amount. This usually happens in January when CMS announces the new Medicare premium rates. You can find more information at or CMS’s online bill pay webpage.

Remember, CMS does not charge a fee for processing the electronic payments, but in some situations, a bank may charge their customers a fee for using their online bill payment service. If you have any questions about bill pay, please contact your bank or financial institution directly. You can also visit CMS’s  online bill pay for more information on paying your Medicare premiums.

  5. I need another copy of my Medicare Premium bill for 2020. I owe the difference between the charge for Medicare and my contribution through Social Security.
    Please email it to me.

  6. I received my first Medicare Part B bill, effective 6/1/2020 (part A was effective 12/1/2019). However the payment adjustment of $54.10 was based on our income for 2017. 2017 was a year my husband worked heavy overtime and got a very large bonus. 2018 was a normal income year. As a matter of fact we actually had to pay the IRS approx. $900 that year. How can I get the adjustment taken off my bill. He’s retiring at the end of this month and my income is about to drop drastically.

  7. I would like to know why my and my husbands CMS payments have not been processed since March 16, 2020. They have benn paid well before the due date, so they have not been late. I don’t understand why the checks have not been cashed. Thank you

  8. I keep receiving past due Medicare premium bill. Even though I’ve made payments. I mailed check for the amount you said was due on May 6th, you didn’t cash check until May 28th. I see it was billed on May 27th. Why is it taking so long to post, when I mailed my check with my husbands in the same envelope, sent two seperate checks. It’s impossible to speck to anyone because of long wait time.I believe I only owe half of what my medicare bill say.
