Your Medicare Cards are Being Updated!*
Medicare will be removing Social Security Numbers from Medicare cards in order to comply with the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015.
Starting in April 2018, CMS will begin mailing new Medicare Cards (red white and blue cards) that include a new member number. The new Medicare card will have a new, unique to you “Medicare Number” in order to help protect your identity.
Once you receive your new card in the mail, destroy your old red white and blue card and start using your new card right away. Destroying the old card ensures no one can get your personal information.
Your benefits under Medicare will not change as a result of this initiative. For more information click on the Learn More button below.
