Here is what was in my email inbox today everyone should be getting one of the new Medicare cards.
Your new Medicare card is coming soon
Keep an eye on your mailbox — we’re starting to mail new Medicare cards in your state!
Remember, once card mailings begin in your state, it’ll take about a month to finish. So you might get your new Medicare card at a different time than friends or neighbors in your area.
One tip: if you have a MyMedicare.gov account, you can sign in and see when your new card is expected to mail. 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.
New Medicare Card
Wondering what’s new? The new cards are still paper, but they will look a little different. The biggest change is that your new card will have a new Medicare Number that’s unique to you, instead of your Social Security Number. This will help to protect your identity. Though you’ll have a new card, rest assured your Medicare coverage and benefits will stay the same.

If you live in Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia or West Virginia — keep an eye on your mailbox — your new Medicare card is on its way!
Card mailing in your state takes about a month to finish, so you might get your new Medicare card at a different time than friends or neighbors in your area. Remember, you can still use your old Medicare card until your new card arrives.
