New Medicare Card Scam Alert
Medicare recipients will receive a new Medicare card in the mail between April 2018 and April 2019. Your new Medicare card will NOT have your Social Security number. This will help protect your identity. Please understand that mailing everyone a new card will take time. Your card might arrive at a different time than your friend's or
neighbor's. You do not need to do anything. Your new card will be mailed automatically. If someone calls you and says they need to confirm your identity or your Medicare number, it is a SCAM. If you receive a call from someone and you are just not sure, please hang up and call the RI Senior Medicare Patrol at (401) 462-0931 to report the call. Help is always free and confidential. Never give your information to anyone who calls you on the phone or comes to your door!
