New Medicare Card

Medicare Card

Medicare Cards have a new face and unique ID numbers. The main idea is having new numbers for each member, removing Social Security Numbers from Medicare cards to prevent fraud, fight identity theft, and keep taxpayer dollars safe, said CMS at www.cms.gov/medicare/new-medicare-card.

The government has great intentions to protect member's information and is providing full support to who need help at Medicare.gov/NewCard and can sign up for emails about the status of card mailings in your area.

Let's look at Medicare Schedule to the card mailings:
