New Medicare Card Webinar with Updated Material (Rescheduled from February 21, 2018) February 28, 2018 2:00 PM CST – 3:00 PM CST
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Kansas City Regional Office invites you to attend a New Medicare Card Webinar. Recent legislation requires CMS to remove Social Security Numbers from all Medicare cards to address the current risk of beneficiary medical identity theft, and to replace the cards with a unique number for each Medicare beneficiary. This webinar will address the new card design, the timeframe of the mailings and scenarios, what Medicare beneficiaries should do to ensure they receive their new card, and partner resources to help with education.
The goal of this free webinar is to educate those who serve people with Medicare and their caregivers so they can be a valuable resource on this initiative. Please share this invite with your partners.
CMS will host separate webinars and informational sessions for people with Medicare and their caregivers.
