How do I get a new Medicare card if my card is lost, stolen, or damaged?

How do I get a replacement Medicare card if my card is lost, stolen, or damaged?

If your Medicare card is lost, stolen or damaged, you can ask for a new one via the Social Security Administration website. Your red, white and blue card will be mailed within 30 days to the address SSA has on file for you. If you need proof that you have Medicare sooner than 30 days, you also can request a letter which you will receive in about 10 days. If you need proof immediately for your doctor or for a prescription, visit your nearest Social Security office. If you have moved and have not reported this information to SSA, you will need to report the address change before they can process your request for a replacement card. If you have moved and have reported this information to SSA, you will need to contact them before they can process your request. If you prefer, or if you are unable to use the online request to obtain a replacement Medicare card, call Social Security's toll-free number, 1-800-772-1213. Their representatives there will be glad to help you. You can also visit your local Social Security office. For the office closest to you try their Field Office Locator.
