Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) release new Medicare cards to help prevent fraud

Beginning in April of this year, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will begin mailing cards to people with Medicare benefits. All Medicare cards will be replaced by April 2019.

Medicare is removing Social Security numbers from Medicare cards in efforts to prevent fraud, fight identity theft and help protect essential program funding. These efforts will help protect private health care and financial information. Medical fraud has been on the rise in recent years with identity thieves using your medical information for prescription drugs, medical services or even surgeries. 

Social Security numbers will be replaced with a randomly-assigned number called Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI).

Anyone that has a loved one receiving care in a skilled nursing, rehabilitation, long-term care or other health care services, need to update those health care providers with their new MBI as soon as they receive the card.

For more details, watch this short video on the updated Medicare cards.
