Replacing one Medicare ID card with another

The Social Security Administration recently made it a whole lot easier for Medicare beneficiaries to replace their Medicare identification cards.

If your card has been lost or damaged and you need to request a replacement card, log in to your “my Social Security" account to request a new one. Your replacement card will arrive in the mail in about 30 days.
