This is good news! Starting in April of 2018, the government will be mailing out new Medicare ID Cards, which will no longer have a Social Security Number. This will help to minimize identity theft and fraud that occurs because this information exists today on the Medicare ID card.
The entire process to mail out 60 million new ID cards will take about a year from April 2018 to April 2019. So, if your friend, neighbor, or even spouse gets their new ID card before you, don't panic. You should receive your new ID card by April of 2019.
