Where or Who Do I Contact About Getting My New Medicare Card?

There is an extremely helpful article located on the AARP Website that will tell you where to create an online account on to learn when your Medicare card has or will be mailed to you.  After you create your online Medicare account, you can login with your selected credentials (username and password) and view and print a copy of your new Medicare card (if it was already issued).   Here is the AARP article Link:

If you have not done so already, you can create an account online with by going here:

The most difficult question in the registration process is when they ask for the month and year when your Medicare Part A or Part B commenced.   Medicare commences normally in the month of your birth when you turn 65 years of age.  So, a good guess would be to input your birth month for the month and, for the year, just input the sum of your birth year plus 65 years.  That will most likely work.

If your card has been mailed, you’ll be able to see your new Medicare number or print an official copy of your card. If that doesn’t work, call the Medicare hotline at 800-633-4227. Officials there can tell you whether there might be a problem, such as a wrong mailing address. In the meantime, you can continue to use your old Medicare card. 

Again, the telephone number where you can call Medicare in order to inquire about your new Medicare card is 800-633-4227. 

Senate Intelligence Committee Hearing with Directors of CIA, NSA and DNI

Senate Intelligence Committee Public Hearing Feb 13, 2018

2 Hours and 40 Minutes

Rachel Maddow, on her 02-12-2018 TV Show, was hoping that certain questions would be asked by the Committee, but these are the questions that were NOT asked by the Committee:  Why did the 3 agency heads of 3 Russia spy agencies travel to the United States last week and meet with top level U.S. intelligence agency officials without any U.S. press release in this regard?  Only the Kremlin issued press releases.  That’s how the American press learned of these plans.  Odd?  Who invited them? One of the Russian agency heads was under sanction and prohibited from entering the United States.  Who authorized his entry, waived the sanction restriction, and who did he meet with while he was here? What were they all here to discuss?
