How can I replace my Medicare card?

If your Medicare card is lost, stolen or damaged, you can ask Social Security for a new one.

  • Your Medicare card will arrive in the mail in about 30 days.
  • Social Security will mail your card to the address they have on file for you.
  • If you need proof that you have Medicare sooner than 30 days, you can request a letter from Social Security. The letter will arrive in the mail in about 10 days.
  • If you need proof immediately for your doctor or for a prescription, visit your local Social Security office.
