There are no costs associated with ordering a replacement Medicare card. Replacement cards can be ordered by contacting the Social Security Administration by phone at 1-800-772-1213 or by using the online form at the official Social Security Administration website.
If individuals lose their Medicare cards or if it is stolen, they can visit their local Social Security Administration office to get an immediate letter that allows them to see a doctor or fill a prescription. Replacement cards generally arrive within 30 days of requests, and a letter of proof can be sent within 10 days in the case of emergencies. If a new card is needed due to a move, individuals should contact the SSA as soon as possible.
