CMS New Medicare Card – webinar Feb. 28


From April 2018 to April 2019, older adults will receive new Medicare cards from CMS. To help protect elders from identity theft, these new cards will replace social security numbers with Medicare numbers that are unique to each beneficiary.

Follow the CMS Medicare messaging guidelines (PDF, 106 KB, 3 pp) to share these changes with elders in your community. To help prevent identity theft, remind elders to guard their cards.

This webinar focuses on the implementation of the new Medicare card and its impact throughout Indian Country.
