CMS Begins Mailing Out New Medicare Cards

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has begun mailing its newly-designed Medicare cards with new Medicare Beneficiary Identifiers to newly eligible and current Medicare beneficiaries. Cards will be sent out on a rolling basis throughout 2018 to fulfill the CMS requirement to remove Social Security Numbers from all Medicare cards by April 2019.

CMS will host a special Open Door Forum on April 5, 12:30 – 1:30 PM EST, to share updates about the new Medicare card mailing, information on how people with Medicare can look up their new Medicare card number or print a replacement card, and updates on resources for partners.
