CHEYENNE, Wyo. - New Medicare cards have been sent out since April, but for Wyoming residents, cards will be sent out starting on September 17th, 2018.
A new change to the cards is a lack of social security number on the card itself. The government wants to protect people against fraud and scams and this is a measure taken to help protect people.
If you would like to find out more information on the new cards, you can go to Medicare's website at Medicare.gov/NewCard.
This is a change to protect against fraud, but people still need to be aware of potential scams. One step people can take is to simply let unknown callers go to voicemail.
