(1-800-772-1213), ordering online (link is below), or visiting your
local Social Security Administration office.  Your social security
number is your medicare number. Your Medicare Card
This page lists the ways to replace a medicare card and has links to

Please note that your social security number is NOT your medicare
number.  In many people, the MC number is their social followed by an
alphanumeric sufix(111-55-9999D), but the suffix is important.  Also,
in rare cases the social and medicare # have no resemblence
