Watch for New Medicare Cards

Kate Schilling, Legal Services Manager for Greater Wisconsin Agency on Aging Resources Inc., posted this Tip of the Month at the State Bar of Wisconsin Public Interest Law Section Blog.

"The new Medicare number will be a unique, randomly assigned number with a combination of numbers and uppercase letters. A sample of the new card design was released to the public in September 2017.

"New Medicare cards will be mailed out, state by state, to Medicare beneficiaries between April 2018 and December 2019. The cards will be mailed to beneficiaries in Wisconsin after June 2018."
