Medicare is sending out new Medicare cards with new ID numbers in an effort to reduce the chance of identity theft (the old numbers were based on the Social Security number of the beneficiary or the beneficiary’s spouse). We were pleased to learn that the new ID number, which is a random combination of letters and numbers, will not include half a dozen letters that look like numbers, especially when hand-written.
