    When you visit a medical provider, and you are covered by Medicare, your provider is obligated to file your claim with Medicare.

    Medicare receives the claim electronically, adjudicates the claim, and if approved will pay their portion. If you have a Medigap plan, Medicare transmits the approved claim information to your gap carrier for them to pay their portion.

    Most claims are processed and paid within 3 weeks.
