Steps to Create a Account

While Medicare enrollment is managed by the Social Security Administration, access to your Medicare account online is handled separately. Once you have a Medicare number, you can create a free MyMedicare login account through Medicare.

Before you start, have your Medicare card handy. If you haven't received it yet, you can access your Medicare number through your online Social Security account.

1. Go to the Login Page

Bring up the account creation page in your web browser. You can do this in two ways.

Enter in the address bar.

  • Look for the Log In button on the top right corner of the site
  • Click Log In
  • From the login screen, click Create an Account Now

Go directly to to login.

  • From the login screen, click Create an Account Now

Once you reach the account creation page, a security message appears explaining information collected by the site. You must agree to the message to create a log in.

2. Enter Your Personal Information

Work your way through each field of the form on the website. You're asked for personal information such as your:

  • Medicare number. Enter your Medicare ID number as it appears on your card. To see an example of where your Medicare number is located, click the link that says, "Where can I find my Medicare number?"
  • Part A or Part B coverage start date. If you only have Part B coverage, click the link that says, "Don’t have Part A," and enter your Part B coverage date. You can find Part A and Part B coverage start dates on your Medicare card.  
  • Last name 
  • Date of birth 
  • ZIP code 
  • Email address (optional)

Once the fields are filled in, check the boxes certifying the information is true and complete and that you agree to the rules and regulations of the site. Click next to continue.

3. Create a Username and Password

The final step to create a account is choosing a username and password. Follow the guidelines for choosing a combination of letters, numbers and special characters. 

You may use your email address as a username but can't use a Medicare or Social Security number as a username or password. 

Don't forget your my Medicare login information, as you need this each time you use your account. You can reset it if you do forget but must answer a secret question to do so. You're prompted to choose the secret question you want to use, such as your favorite vacation spot or book.

Once you submit the form, a message appears to confirm you've successfully created a account. You can now log in and access the features.
