Medicare will be mailing the new Medicare cards starting April 2018. The new Medicare cards will no longer have social security numbers on them in an attempt to help reduce identity theft. It will have a new medicare number designated just for the recipient.
Things to note about the new Medicare card:
1. No action is necessary to receive the new Medicare card.
2. There is no charge for the new Medicare card.
3. The new Medicare card will not change Medicare benefits or coverage.
4. Medicare will never ask for personal information to get your new number.
5. Beware of scammers in relation to receiving your new card and account number.
Possible scam artists may try to get your new number and other personal information by pretending to be associated with Medicare. Do not answer questions asked about personal information from anyone. Medicare will not call or email to ask confidential information.
