Starting this month and going throughout the year, Medicare will be sending out new cards for all patients. This is to help protect patient’s identity, as the new Medicare numbers will not include the social security number. The new cards will not change your existing coverage or benefits, and there will be more detailed information included with the new card in the mail. There is more info directly from Medicare below, and you can also find additional information at the official website. Keep an eye out for your new card in the mail!
