What's New Updates - New Medicare Cards
Starting in April 2018, CMS will begin mailing new Medicare cards to our
beneficiaries that includes a new Medicare Number. Medicare is removing
Social Security Numbers from the Medicare cards and replacing it with
a new alpha-numeric number.
CMS plans to have a transition period where you can use either the HICN
or the Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) to exchange data with them.
The transition period will begin April 1, 2018 and run through December 31, 2019.
