The auto insurance requested for my social security number (or HICN number, which I do not have) after I sent a third party claim letter due to a car accident personal injury. The fault is on the other party. No argument there. The letter stated they are required by Federal law to determine Medicare entitlement. Section 111 of the Federal Medicare, Medicaid, and SCHIP Extension Act of 2007 requires liability, no fault and workers' compensation insurers to determine whether a person making a claim is entitled to Medicare benefits on any basis. I made no claim to Medicare and I am recovering. Is this a correct request, what is the purpose, and is it OK to give the SS number to the insurance company?
