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.
Haven’t gotten your new Medicare card yet? Sign in to your secure MyMedicare.gov account to see your Medicare Number and print your official card. If you don’t have a MyMedicare account yet, sign up for free at MyMedicare.gov today!
Alternately, you can call 1-800-MEDICARE and our call center representatives can help you get your new card.
Note: If you’re in a Medicare Advantage Plan, like an HMO or PPO, keep using your Medicare Advantage Plan ID card whenever you need care. If you have a Medicare drug plan card, keep that, too. However, you should also carry your new Medicare card — you may be asked to show it.
