Medicare has begun to mail new ID cards to its millions of members. The replacement cards will have a new assigned ID number. These cards don’t have your social security number. The process of mailing new cards will take about a year.
It is important to note that scammers have found another new way to steal from the elderly. The scammer calls and states you must pay a processing fee before you receive a new card. Not True! They may state you are due a refund on old cards so you give them your bank account number so they can deposit the refund into your account ( never give out your bank account number over the phone).
