Medicare recipients in Alabama should’ve received their new cards in August. If a new card has been mailed you can view your new number OR print an official copy. Those new cards have now replaced the user’s Social Security number with a number which is unique to that recipient. The new number consists of a combination of eleven randomly assigned numbers and letters called a Medicare Beneficiary Identifier or MBI. The new numbers use the digits 0 to 9 and the letters S, L, O, I, B and Z are never used.
All coverage and benefits remain the same.
The new card can be used immediately, no activation is required.
For more information you can call Medicare at 1-800-633-4227.
You can go here and put in your email to see the current status of your card.
