Remember that your new Medicare card will come in a plain white envelope from the Department of Health and Human Services. If the card didn’t arrive, call 1-800-MEDICARE. The call center representatives can check the status and help you get your new card. In the meantime, use your current Medicare card to get health care services.
Ohio Medicare beneficiaries should have received their new Medicare Card without their Social Security number. Why? To protect them from identity fraud.
