The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is removing social security numbers from all Medicare cards to lower the risk of identity theft. CMS is sending all beneficiaries new cards with new numbers.
CMS will mail your card between April 2018 and April 2019. There is no cost for the new card. Your current Medicare card is valid until you receive your new card. This change will not affect your Medicare or Tufts Health Unify benefits or your Tufts Health Unify member ID card. Please continue to use your current Tufts Health Unify member ID card.
Medicare will send the new cards to the address the Social Security Administration (SSA) has on file for you. To verify that SSA has your current address, visit ssa.gov/myaccount.
For more information, visit CMS.
Tufts Health Unify is a health plan that contracts with both Medicare and MassHealth to provide benefits of both programs to enrollees.
