MLN General Information

Welcome to the Medicare Learning Network® – Your Medicare education and information resource!

The Medicare Learning Network (MLN) is the home for education, information, and resources for the Medicare Fee-For-Service provider community.  The MLN gives you access to the Medicare Program information you need, when you need it, so you can focus more on providing care to your patients.

Serving as the umbrella for a variety of CMS education and communication activities, the MLN offers:

  1. Educational Products, including MLN Matters® Articles;
  2. National Provider Call Program;
  3. Provider Partnership Program;
  4. CMS MLN e-News;

CMS relies on its Medicare Claims Administration Contractors to assist it in delivering education and information to Medicare Fee-For-Service providers. These contractors maintain toll-free telephone lines for inquiries, provide self-service options, such as websites and portals, and conduct outreach and education, including interactions with individual providers, group practices, and local professional associations. If you have questions about the Medicare Program, you should first get in touch with your Medicare Contractor. To find contact information, please use the Provider Compliance Interactive Map.
