To help protect against identity theft, Medicare mailed new health insurance cards. Your new card has a new Medicare Number that’s unique to you, instead of your SocialSecurity Number. To get your Medicare card:

 

    • Call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). TTY users can call 1-877-486-2048.
      There might be a problem that needs to be corrected, like updating your mailing address.

 

    • Sign in to your MyMedicare.gov account. If you don’t have an account yet, visit MyMedicare.gov to create one. You can sign in to see your Medicare Number or print an official copy of your card.

     

    Guard your Medicare card like it’s a credit card. Be sure to carry your card with you when you’re away from home. Let your doctor, hospital, or other health care provider see your card when you need hospital, medical, or other health care services.
