The new Medicare card, will have a Medicare number listed on them that is unique to you, instead of your Social Security number to better protect your identity.
Now that card mailings have started, it will take at least a month to finish. So you might get your new Medicare card at a different time than friends or neighbors in your area.
If you have a MyMedicare.gov account, you can sign in and see when your new card has been mailed. If you 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.
Though you’ll have a new card, your Medicare coverage and benefits will stay the same.
