Medigap Monday: Three ways to track your new Medicare card

You may have heard that Medicare has started mailing new Medicare cards to everyone with Medicare. Hang tight — mailing takes some time across the country, and you might get your card at a different time than friends or neighbors in your state. In the meantime, keep using your current Medicare card until your new one arrives.

3 ways for you to find out when you should expect your new Medicare card in the mail:

  • Check out the map on Medicare.gov/NewCard. Keep coming back to check the status of card mailings in your state. Once card mailings begin in your state, it’ll take at least a month to finish.
  • Keep an eye on your email. We’ll send you an email update when new Medicare cards start mailing in your state.
  • Log in to your MyMedicare.gov account to see if your new card has mailed. Don’t have an account yet? You can sign up now at MyMedicare.gov—  it’s a free, secure, and easy way to access all your Medicare information in one place.
