New cards will arrive between April 2018 and April 2019.

Starting in spring of 2018, the federal government is issuing new Medicare cards to all people enrolled in the government health care program. The government is mailing new cards to seniors between April 2018 and April 2019. According to Medicare.gov:

“When you’re enrolled in Medicare, you’ll get your red, white, and blue Medicare card in the mail. If you’re automatically enrolled, you’ll get your red, white, and blue Medicare card in the mail 3 months before your 65th birthday or your 25th month of getting disability benefits. Your Medicare card shows that you have Medicare health insurance. It shows whether you have Part A (Hospital Insurance), Part B (Medical Insurance) or both, and it shows the date your coverage starts.”

The cards will be issued automatically to all people enrolled in Medicare, and will arrive in the mail according to the description above.
