What is my Medicare effective date?

Medicare Part A and Part B

To check your Medicare Part A and Part B effective date, look at the lower right corner of your Medicare card. The effective date is also stated on the letter that you received from Social Security or the Railroad Retirement Board.

If neither of these items are available, call the Social Security Administration Monday through Friday from 7 AM to 7 PM at 1-800-772-1213 or 1-800-325-0778 (TTY Services).

The Railroad Retirement Board can be reached at 1-877-772-5772 or 1-800-325-0778 (TTY Services) Monday through Friday, from 9AM to 3:30PM.

Medicare Advantage or Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan 

There is a wide range of coverage start dates for both Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D depending on when you choose to enroll and which election period you use. For more information, contact your plan's administrator.

Find out what every Medicare plan really costs

Each Medicare plan covers different drugs, and re-imburses different amounts.

Until now, it was impossible to compare Medicare plans — to know how much you will really pay under each plan.

Medicare Helper is proud to introduce our Medicare True-Cost Revealer. Just tell us your drugs, and we’ll show you the "Everything Cost" for each plan — that is, the real cost of the plan through the year.

Amazing. And completely free.
