New Medicare cards are starting to be mailed to people in Iowa. The new cards have a new Medicare number that is unique to the card holder, instead of the individual’s Social Security Number. The change is intended to prevent fraud and identity theft. As soon as you receive your new card, please bring a copy to the business office. If you do not get a card within the next month, call 1-800-MEDICARE (633-4227). There may be something that needs corrected, such as updating the mailing address.
You should have also received this month a notice regarding our new podiatrist. The mailing contained the podiatrist contract. If you are interested in having your loved one see the podiatrist, please fill out the contract and return it to the business office as soon as possible. Thank you!
