PAYMENTS BY CHECK

When you provide a check as a payment, you authorize the Medicare Premium Collection Center (MPCC) to use the information from your check to make a one-time electronic funds transfer from your bank account. When the MPCC uses information from your check to make an electronic funds transfer, they may withdraw funds from your bank account as soon as the same day they receive your payment. You will not get your check back from your bank. If the MPCC cannot process your payment electronically, they will process it as a check transaction. Your bank statement will show the transaction as "CMS Medicare" and this is your proof of payment.
