Senior Preferred Has Received the CMS 5-Star Rating Seven Years in a Row
Notice from the Social Security Administration
New Medicare Cards Are Coming!
Medicare will mail new Medicare cards between April 2018 and April 2019. Your new card will have a new Medicare Number that’s unique to you, instead of your Social Security number. This will help to protect your identity. See an example of the new Medicare card.
Things to know about your new Medicare card
- Your new card will automatically come to you. You don’t need to do anything.
- Your Medicare coverage and benefits will stay the same.
- Your new card is free – there’s no charge for it.
What Does this Mean for Senior Preferred Members
You should still use your Senior Preferred Card in place of any past, present, and / or future Medicare cards when you go in for care / services. We advise that you store your Medicare card in a secure, safe place.
Watch out for scams
Medicare will never ask you to give us personal or private information to get your new Medicare Number and card.
Scam artists may try to get personal information (like your current Medicare Number) by contacting you about your new card. If someone asks you for your information, for money, or threatens to cancel your health benefits if you don’t share your personal information, hang up and call us at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). Learn more about the limited situations in which Medicare can call you.
*Plan performance summary star ratings are assessed each year and may change from one year to the next. The 5-star rating reflects Senior Preferred Wisconsin and Iowa.
