    New Medicare Cards Coming to Californians

    New Medicare Cards Coming to Californians April – June 2018

    Posted by Karen Fletcher on January 29, 2018 in Fraud & Abuse, Professionals



    The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services will mail new Medicare cards to all Medicare beneficiaries to help protect people from identity fraud. In California, your cards will arrive between April and June. Fraudsters are always looking for ways to get people’s Social Security Numbers (SSNs) so Medicare is removing SSNs from all Medicare cards to make them safer.

    Your new card will have a new Medicare Number that’s unique to you. The new card will help protect your identity and keep your personal information more secure. Your Medicare coverage and benefits stay the same.


    Medicare will automatically mail your new card at no cost to the address you have on file with Social Security. There’s nothing you need to do! If you need to update your official mailing address, visit your online my Social Security account.


    Once you get your new Medicare card, take these 3 steps to make it harder for someone to steal your information and identity:


    1. Destroy your old Medicare card right away.


    1. Use your new card. Doctors, other health care providers, and plans approved by Medicare know that Medicare is replacing the old cards. They are ready to accept your new card when you need care.


    1. Beware of people contacting you about your new Medicare card and asking you for your Medicare Number, personal information, or to pay a fee for your new card. Treat your Medicare Number like you treat your Social Security or credit card numbers. Remember, Medicare will never contact you uninvited to ask for your personal information.


    For more information about your new Medicare card, visit go.medicare.gov/newcard. Also see this beneficiary Fact Sheet in English and Spanish, and watch the video below. In addition, you can visit Medicare.gov for tips to prevent Medicare fraud, or see our Fraud & Abuse section of our website. If you have any fraud related questions or suspected incidences to report, call our California Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) at 1-855-613-7080.

    Just got this email.

    New Medicare cards are starting to mail in your state or territory.

    Your new Medicare card is coming soon

    Keep an eye on your mailbox — we’re starting to mail new Medicare cards in your state or territory!

    Remember, card mailing in your state or territory takes about a month.So you might get your new Medicare card at a different time than friends or neighbors in your area.

    One tip: if you have a MyMedicare.gov account, you can sign in and see when your new card is expected to mail. Don’t have a MyMedicare.gov account yet? It’s easy to sign up — just visit MyMedicare.gov. It’s a free, secure way for you to access your personal Medicare-related information.


    Wondering what’s new? The new cards are still paper, but they will look a little different. The biggest change is that 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. Though you’ll have a new card, rest assured your Medicare coverage and benefits will stay the same.

    Sincerely,
    The Medicare Team
