    New Medicare Cards Are Coming

    The Center for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) Services will be mailing out new Medicare cards to all current Medicare beneficiaries.  The roll out for Connecticut residents will begin in June 2018.  CMS hopes to have all new Medicare cards mailed out to beneficiaries by April 2019.  The card will have a new claim number (will no longer be social security numbers) and will look slightly different.  Once you receive your new card, you can begin using it immediately for

    your medical services.  All cards will be mailed to the address that Social Security has on file.  If your address has changed, please contact Social Security Administration to update.

    * SCAM ALERT*

    With the roll out of new Medicare cards, scammers are up to their old tricks.  Phone calls are being made to Medicare beneficiaries stating that in order for new cards to be received, personal information is needed (ie: social security numbers, identity information, etc.).  Please be aware that neither Medicare nor CMS are making any calls to Medicare beneficiaries in order to process new cards.
