NC: New Medicare cards on the way

In a move to combat medical identity theft, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is issuing new cards that no longer include Social Security numbers.

You can sign up to receive an email when your card is in the mail at medicare.gov/newcard. All you have to do is enter your email address and state.

Alabama

Connecticut

Florida

Georgia

Maine

Massachusetts

New Hampshire

New Jersey

New York

North Carolina

Rhode Island

South Carolina

Vermont

 

This is important: Medicare will automatically mail your new card for free to the address you have on file with Social Security.

Click here if you need to update your mailing address.

The SSN-based Health Insurance Claim Number (HICN) is being replaced with an 11-character Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI), which is made up of numbers and uppercase letters.

Each MBI is randomly generated and the characters don’t have any hidden or special meaning.

Once you receive your new Medicare card with an MBI, you can use it right away and destroy your old card. Your coverage and benefits will stay the same.
