Looking For Your New Medicare CardFor my constituents with Medicare or Medicaid, please be aware you will be receiving new cards. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services are removing Social Security numbers from Medicare cards and replacing them with new identification numbers.

The new Medicare card will have a completely different and randomly assigned identifier that will be 11 characters long, containing a mix of numbers and uppercase letters. This is the Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI). CMS is also removing the gender and signature line from the new Medicare card. The MBI is confidential like your SSN and should be protected as personal health information.

Each MBI is unique and randomly generated, and the characters are “non-intelligent,” which means they don’t have any hidden or special meaning.

The MBI won’t change Medicare benefits. People with Medicare may start using their new Medicare cards and MBIs as soon as they get them.

Please read the attached flyer for further details. For more information or questions about the new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) card contact Medicare at 800-633-4227.
