New Medicare Cards

New Medicare Cards

New Medicare card rollout scheduled for this summer


News Staff - May 15, 2018

PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Senior Health Information and Insurance Education (SHIINE) program would like to remind all individuals with Medicare that new Medicare cards will be mailed to them in the coming months by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

To combat identify theft, the new cards will feature a new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier number instead of a Social Security Number.

Medicare beneficiaries do not have to do anything to receive their new card, but should make sure their address is correct with the Social Security Administration (SSA) in order to receive their new card.

If you would like to update your address with the SSA, please visit www.ssa.gov or call 1-800-772-1213.

The mailings will be staggered throughout the year and are expected to begin in South Dakota in June 2018.

The transition to the new cards is expected to be complete by April 2019.

For more information on the rollout, please visit www.shiine.net or www.medicare.gov.
