Medicare patients will soon be getting new Medicare Cards. The new cards will no longer contain the Medicare recipients’ social security numbers. This was done in hopes of eliminating fraud and identity theft. The new cards are due to begin rolling out April 2018 and will be mailed in phases by geographic location. It is imperative to have a plan in place to begin updating your patient’s Medicare information and verifying that your clearinghouse is setup to begin receiving the new format.
