Check your mail: Alabama Medicare recipients are receiving new cards in June
Did you know Medicare will be issuing new cards? In order to help prevent identify theft, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is issuing new identification cards to all 55,000,000+ Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries across the US. Alabama residents can expect to see new cards in their mailboxes after June 2018.
Below is an example of a new card, with the biggest change being replacing your social security number with a new 11-digit ID called the Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI). The MBI is required for providers like UCA to file the appropriate claims. Please be sure to bring your new card to your next appointment!
