Medicare cards were updated in 2018 to remove the social security number, gender, and signature line.
The social security number was replaced with a Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI). All Medicare cards were replaced in 2019. As of January 1, 2020, beneficiaries will only be allowed to use the new card.
