Understanding Medicare Summary Notices

Resources > Understanding Medicare Summary Notices

For people with Original Medicare, Medicare Summary Notices (MSNs) list recent services received from doctors, hospitals, or other health care providers. They explain what the provider billed Medicare, Medicare’s approved amount for the service, and other important payment details.

  • Are you ever confused by the notes and codes appearing on your MSN?
  • What should you do if your MSN lists services you didn’t receive?
  • Need an MSN sent to you in a language other than English?
