New Medicare Cards Expected in 2019
WESLACO – The Federal Trade Commission announced Medicare cards will change.
The card will be replaced with one that no longer shows a person’s Social Security number. Beginning April 2019, the card will have a new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) that will be used for billing and for checking eligibility and claim status.
The change will happen automatically and it will be at no cost to anyone.
The removal of the number from the Medicare cards is in effort to help fight medical identity theft and protect medical and financial information.
