Soon your Medicare card will not use your or your spouse's Social Security number to identify you. It is required to be removed from all cards as of April 2019 and will be replaced by a random ID called a Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI). Keep in mind, the removal of the social security number is to protect Medicare beneficiaries,the MBI is still personally identifiable information, so you will want protect it.

Watch for your new card in the mail. If you do not receive it by the April 16, 2019 deadline, please contact Medicare.
