In an email blast on 2/13/2019, Medicare.gov announced that it had finished mailing the last of the Medicare-number replacement cards to people who have been using Medicare cards using their social-security numbers. Here is the text making the announcement. This will affect what you say to your clients.
Good news: We’ve finished mailing new Medicare cards across the country! You should’ve received your new card by now.
Here’s what to do next:
- Carry and use your new Medicare card when you need care.
- Protect your Medicare Number and card, just like you would protect your credit card.
- Destroy your old Medicare card to help protect your identity.
