Expect new Medicare card

If you are receiving Medicare benefits, expect to receive a new Medicare card between April 2018 and April 2019.

Your previous card is being replaced with a new card that will not have your Social Security Number on it. The new card will have a distinct number on it that will become your identifying number for Medicare purposes. (Wasn't your Social Security Number your number?)

If you have moved, check and update the address in your Social Security account at or call 800/722-1213 (TTY 800/325-0778).
