You're getting a new Medicare card!
Medicare is mailing new Medicare cards starting in April 2018. This mailing is nationwide and will take approximately a year. New cards will be sent through the mail; Medicare will NEVER call or e-mail you regarding your new card. PLEASE be aware there are scammers who are already taking advantage of this.
