Three Ways to Check Your New Medicare Card Status
You may have heard that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has begun mailing new Medicare cards to everyone with Medicare. While you await your new card, keep using your current Medicare card until your new one arrives.
According to HHS, here are three ways to find out when you should expect your new Medicare card in the mail:
- Check out the map on Medicare.gov/NewCard. Keep coming back to check the status of card mailings in your state. Remember, once card mailings begin in your state, it’ll take about a month to finish.
- Keep an eye on your email. HHS send you an email update when new Medicare cards start mailing in your state.
- Log in to your MyMedicare.gov account to see if your new card has mailed. Don’t have an account yet? Sign up now at MyMedicare.gov — it’s a free, secure, and easy way to access all your Medicare information in one place.
