New Medicare Cards Shipping
The change over to new Medicare cards has begun, although Wisconsin residents likely won’t begin to see those new cards for a few months. The new cards will remove your social security number,
and replace it with a random sequence of eleven digits. The rollout is
happening automatically, no confirmation is needed, and it is free to
consumers. The Wisconsin Department of Ag, Trade and Consumer Protection says If someone contacts you requesting payment or confirmation of your new card, it’s likely a scam. Once you receive the new card, you should shred the old one to make
sure your social security number cannot be taken from it. While the process began this month, Wisconsin’s change over likely won’t begin until after June.
