Medicare will mail new Medicare cards between April 2018 and April 2019. Your new card will have a new Medicare Number that's unique to you, instead of your Social Security Number. This will help to protect your identity.
Medicare pays for many preventive services that can detect health problems early when they’re easier to treat. Ask your health care provider what services you need.
If you reach the Medicare prescription drug coverage gap, you'll qualify for savings on brand-name and generic drugs.
This may be the only chance you have to change your health and prescription drug coverage for 2018.
