Free, one-hour session in conjunction with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services roll out of new Medicare cards. The sessions will be “webinars” that will be shown at the centers in each county.
The federal government is removing Social Security numbers from all Medicare cards to lessen the risk of medical identity theft. The new cards will have unique number for each Medicare beneficiary.
The webinar, conducted by the Kansas City regional CMS office, will address the new card design, the time frame of the mailings, and what people with Medicare should do to ensure they receive their new cards. Open to the public.
