Medicare Sending New ID Cards

Medicare is mailing new Medicare cards beginning April 1, 2018, through April 1, 2019. The new cards will no longer include individuals’ Social Security numbers. Instead, a new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) number will be assigned to each individual. Learn more here or at at Medicare.gov.

UnitedHealthcare does not use Social Security numbers or HICNs on its ID cards. The UnitedHealthcare ID cards will not change.

Avoid scams: Medicare will never initiate calls about your new card, or ask to verify information over the phone!

 

Cigna to Acquire Express Scripts

Are You Under 65?

If you retired before age 65 and qualify under the Medical Trust's eligibility rules*, you can continue your healthcare coverage at your own expense until you turn 65 and are eligible for Medicare.

  • If your former employer participates with the Medical Trust, you have access to the health and dental plans they offer, at the same group rates.
