Update Patient Profiles With New Medicare Card Numbers

All of your Medicare patients will get new cards and ID numbers...to help protect against identity theft and fraud.

The new paper Medicare cards will still be red, white, and blue. But instead of a Social Security number, they'll have a unique, random, 11-character ID number called a Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI).

Tell your Medicare patients to watch for their new card in the mail between Apr 2018 and Apr 2019...and to bring it in so you can update their profile. Cards will be sent in waves based on location and other factors.
