Bring your new card to your appointments

By now, you should have your new Medicare card — with your new Medicare Number.

Bring your card to any appointments with your doctors, so they have your new number in their systems. Doing so will help us process your claims.

If you’re in a Medicare Advantage Plan (like an HMO or PPO) or a Medicare Drug Plan, use that Plan ID card whenever you need care or prescriptions. However, you should also carry your Medicare card — you may be asked to show it so your doctor can make sure your new number is in their system.

Note: You can only use your old card and Medicare Number to get health care services until December 31, 2019. You can always print your official new Medicare card and find your Medicare Number with your account.
