When will I get my Medicare card?

If you’re automatically enrolled in Medicare (if you have paid into social security for 10 years), you should receive your Medicare card in the mail 3 months before your 65th birthday or your 25th month of getting disability benefits. Your Medicare card shows that you have Medicare health insurance. It shows whether you have Part A (Hospital Insurance), Part B (Medical Insurance) or both, and it shows the date your coverage starts.
