New Medicare Cards are being sent to consumers now through April 2019. There is NOTHING the consumer needs to do. Social Security will NOT call consumers. There is NO CHARGE for new cards.
This Scam is happening right now… Someone received a call from a man identifying himself as a Social Security Employee. He was able to tell the consumer their address that they have on “file”. However, they needed his social security number and bank account information as verification to issue a new Medicare Card. The consumer didn’t give them any information and hung up.
If you receive a phone call from someone posing as Medicare or Social Security, hang up. Neither will call you. Cards are FREE! Residents in Wisconsin should start seeing their cards in June 2018. You can call 1-800-633-4227 or 1-877-272-8720 to report any suspicious behavior.
