New Medicare Cards on the Way

Mineral County residents are urged to keep a lookout for their new Medicare card. In a press release from Mt. Grant General Hospital, they encourage those who participate in the Medicare program to get keep a look out for their new card to help protect against identity theft.

Medicare mailed our new health insurance cards with a new Medicare number that is unique to the cardholder, instead of the use of a Social Security number.

To get your card, call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). TTY users can call 1-877-486-2048.

For those who use, please log into your account to print your official copy. If you do not have an account yet, visit the web address listed above and create an account.

Medicare urges those who use the program to guard their card like it’s a credit card. Carry the card with you when you are away from home.
