New Medicare Numbers, Cards to be Sent in April 2018

Beginning in April 2018, the current Social Security Number-based HICN printed on the red, white, and blue Medicare card will be replaced with a new Medicare number. New Medicare numbers will be assigned to all Medicare recipients, and new Medicare cards will begin to be mailed to all people with Medicare in April 2018. This change was mandated by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015. Patients and customers can find information about the project here.
