New Jersey has finished mailing the new Medicare Cards. If you have not received your card, please visit My Social Security Account.
The reason for this change, is an effort to protect seniors against identify fraud and theft. They have eliminated your social security number from your Medicare Card and replacing with random letters and numbers. Please note that your new card will consist of numbers 0 thru 9. Also, letters that will NEVER be used are; S, L, O, I, B and Z.
Once you receive your new card, please bring a copy to the Business Office and/or the Wellness Center so we can update your file.
In closing, in order to protect yourself from identity theft/fraud, please do not share your private/personal information over the phone.
As a reminder, Medicare Open Enrollment is October 15th thru December 7th, 2018.
