Scammers are taking advantage of the federal government plan to replace your current Medicare card with one that no longer includes your social security number or other personal information. Your new card will have a Medicare number that is unique to you, instead of your Social Security Number.
Medicare is planning to send the new cards by April of 2019. Here is what you should know to protect yourself!
You can sign up for an email alert on Medicare’s new card page about when the card is in the mail. If you need to update your address, you can call 1-800-772-1213 or use your online my Social Security account.
