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

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!
