New Medicare cards have been mailed


February 22, 2019

Medicare beneficiaries nationwide should have recently received a new Medicare card in the mail.

Beneficiaries are reminded to carry and use their new card when they need care, protect their Medicare number and card just like they would protect a credit card and destroy their old card to help protect their identity.

Anyone who has not received a new card should sign in to their secure account to see their Medicare number and print an official card. Beneficiaries who don’t have a MyMedicare account yet can sign up for free at

Alternately, beneficiaries can call 1-800-MEDICARE for help getting a new card. Beneficiaries in a Medicare Advantage Plan, like an HMO or PPO, should keep using their Medicare Advantage Plan ID card whenever they need care. Medicare drug plan cards can be kept too.

County residents who have other questions or need further assistance can contact Karen Carroll, Carter County Senior Citizen Coordinator, at 775-8751.
