New Medicare Cards Coming in 2018 – Beware of Scams
New Medicare Cards Coming in 2018 – Beware of Scams!
In April 2018, a change is being made to help prevent fraud and identity theft, by removing your Social Security number from your card. Unfortunately, scammers are already using this change to take advantage of Medicare recipients.
Some scammers call claiming to be Medicare and say they must confirm your current card. Others call saying there is a charge for the new card and collect payment information
BE AWARE – There is no charge for your new card and Medicare will never call you for your information. They already have it!
