New Medicare Card Format Starting Spring 2018

By admin on June 30, 2018 | Listed under Medicare | Leave a comment |

Medicare cards and the “Number” assigned to each person is changing.

Starting in April of 2018 the new format of cards will start going out to “new” and “old” medicare members.

The “NEW” card has a new number instead of your Social  Security Number.  This new number is unique to you.

Once you get the new card via USPS  (US Mail) destroy your old card and start using the new card.

Only give your new Medicare Number to doctors, pharmacists,other health care providers, your insurers,or people you trust to work with Medicare on your behalf.
