New Medicare Cards are coming!
Between April 2018 and April 2019, Medicare will be sending out new cards. You’ll get a new Medicare number to replace your Social Security number on the card. There are a couple of things you can do to get ready:
- Make sure your mailing address is up to date. If you need to change your mailing address, you can visit ssa.gov/myaccount or call 800.772.1213.
- Beware of anyone who contacts you about your new Medicare card. Do not give any personal information. Medicare we’ll never ask you for any private information to get your new card or number.
- Be patient. At this time, there is no estimate on when you’ll receive your new card. It will take a year to distribute to everyone!
