Verify Enrollment


Verifying Railroad Medicare enrollment is easy using our online PTAN Lookup and Request Tool.

This tool first validates the provider identification information you enter — local Part B MAC PTAN, National Provider Identifier (NPI) and Tax Identification Number (TIN) — against enrollment information in our files. If a match is found, the tool retrieves and releases the Railroad Medicare PTAN.  If an existing Railroad Medicare PTAN is not found, you will then be given the option to request a new Railroad Medicare PTAN. 

Here's a Quick Reference for looking up a Railroad Medicare PTAN in the tool:

What do you want to do?

Enter the following provider identification elements

Look up an existing Railroad Medicare PTAN for an individual provider or supplier (physician, non-physician practitioner, ambulance, laboratory, ambulatory surgical center, etc.)

  • PTAN assigned to the individual provider by the local Part B MAC
  • Individual NPI
  • Last 5-digits of Tax Identification Number (TIN)*

*If the provider is enrolled with their Part B MAC under a Social Security Number (SSN),  please contact the RRB SMAC PCC for assistance

If you are employed by a clearinghouse or third-party biller, you must contact the provider to obtain the Railroad Medicare PTAN.
