As your trusted health insurance agent, I want to reach out and make you aware of a time-sensitive issue.
As a Medicare member, within the last year, you should have received a new Medicare card that included a new Medicare ID number. This new Medicare card did not affect your Medicare benefits and was mailed to you to help protect you against fraud by removing your Social Security Number from your Medicare card.
On January 1, 2020, your old Medicare card, that includes your Social Security Number, will no longer work. If you held on to your old Medicare card or have not yet switched to using your new Medicare card, you will need to take action. If you haven't already, I recommend that you destroy your old Medicare card with scissors or a shredder and begin using your new card as soon as possible.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call me at (563) 202-2332.
