You are getting new card.
Cards will be mailed between April 2018 and April 2019.
Why new Medicare card?
Because fraud happens and you and your Medicare number need protection.
Your new Medicare card will be a number different from your social security number.
Help in the fight against healthcare fraud, waste and abuse by protecting your identity.
Do not give your numbers or personal information unless to someone you trust.
And if pressured, contact your agent or Medicare at 1-800-MEDICARE.
