The Social Security Administration (SSA) located at www.ssa.gov has just announced that if you lost, damaged, or need to replace your Medicare card, you can now get a replacement Medicare card using your online My Social Security account located at http://www.ssa.gov/myaccount/. This is the newest feature to My Social Security.
According to the SSA your Medicare card is proof that you have Medicare health insurance. Medical professionals and insurance companies need this proof to provide you with accurate care and compensation. If your card is lost or damaged, and you are currently entitled to Medicare, you can easily order a replacement using your online My Social Security account (http://www.ssa.gov/myaccount/).
Simply access your online My Social Security account and select the “Replacement Documents” tab. Then select “Mail my replacement Medicare card.” After you request a card, it will arrive in the mail in about 30 days.
