Yes, you will receive new ID cards for your Medicare supplement (Medigap) plan. You’ll want to keep your Medigap ID card with your Original Medicare Card (Medicare Parts A & B card). When you get a service done (e.g. going for a visit to the doctor’s office), you’re presenting both ID cards so the office knows to bill Medicare and the insurance company before sending a bill your way, if applicable. It may take 1-2 weeks for the carrier to generate the policy and ID cards and mail them to you.
If you need to go to the doctor’s office between when the policy and ID cards are issued and when they arrive in the mail, you can usually provide your carrier name and policy number and the carrier’s customer service line phone number for the doctor’s office to call to verify your coverage is in force.
