The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is removing Social Security Numbers from Medicare cards to prevent fraud, fight identity theft, and keep taxpayer dollars safe. New cards are being mailed to each beneficiary.
In the TMF region, Medicare is currently mailing new cards in Texas and New Mexico. Please keep an eye out for your new card in the mail.
For Medicare beneficiaries in Oklahoma and Arkansas, you should have already received your new cards. If not, please call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) and Medicare will verify your identity and address, and help you get your new card.
