Wondering what’s new? The new cards are still paper, but they 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 a Social Security Number. This will help protect your identity. Though you’ll have a new card, rest assured your Medicare coverage and benefits will stay the same.
