Medicare will mail new Medicare cards between April 2018 and April 2019. Your new card will have a new Medicare Number that’s unique to you, instead of your Social Security Number. This will help to protect your identity.
Things to know about your new Medicare card
- Your new card will automatically come to you. You don’t need to do anything.
- Your Medicare coverage and benefits will stay the same.
- Your new card is free – there’s no charge for it.
