    Well I have bitched since I received my Medicare card because my SSN is used as part of the ID... I have my very first Social Security Card I was issued in 1968... Plainly stated on the card it says
    "For Social Security and Tax Purposes - Not for Identification"...


    I have argued with a whole shitload of medical paper pushers re: this fact and most generally gave in, but they knew where I stood when we were done...

    Anyway for those who haven't heard new cards are being distributed during the next year... Anyone just applying will get a new card, but if you have been on the program for some time you will receive a new card before the end of April 2019... No SSN will be on the new card... Some new ID number will be assigned to you...
