Medicare Carrier and Locality Lookup by Zip Code
This MDTool identifies the applicable Medicare carrier and locality for any postal zip code in the United States.
Note that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) occasionally changes a zip code's Medicare locality assignment.
Therefore, this utility is updated annually. The zip code/carrier-locality crosswalk is reported for each year, 2002-2012, so you can track these changes.
