I just received a bill from my doctor's office that says they submitted my bill to Medicare and they say I don't have Medicare. Who do I contact to check this. I've had Medicare for several years and I know I have it but how do I fix this?

Did they present Medicare with your correct identification number? In some cases, it is an ID mix up that leads to rejections.

I would check with the doctor's office before I contacted Medicare. You never know, the doctor's office may have not submitted the correct information. Make sure you take your Medicare card or a copy of it to the doctor's office for them to resubmit the bill to Medicare. Good luck!

I would follow Daniel's advice in taking your card to the doctor for them to resubmit but I would also call the 800 number on the back of your card and ask them what is going on.
