New fraud prevention initiative to stop identify theft
Personal identity theft affects a large and growing number of seniors. People age 65 or older are increasingly the victims of this type of crime. This is why the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is starting a fraud prevention initiative that removes Social Security numbers from Medicare cards. The aim is to help combat identity theft and safeguard taxpayer dollars.
CMS will mail new Medicare ID cards starting in April 2018
