New Medicare Cards Are Coming

Are you currently receiving Medicare? To help prevent fraud and fight identity theft, Medicare is removing Social Security numbers from Medicare cards. Current Medicare recipients will receive a new card in the mail with a new Medicare number unique to you.

Arizona is scheduled to receive the new cards after June 2018. These will be mailed automatically, so no action is required on your part as long as your address is up-to-date. If you need to update your address, contact Social Security at or call 1-800-772-1213.
