It’s very important to keep your Medicare card safe and in good condition. Your wallet may be a good place to keep it because you can then have it with you at doctor visits. But do safeguard it, as you would an identity document or credit card.

The Social Security department advises against card lamination in general because the card may have built-in security features that could be compromised by lamination. As an alternative, for a few dollars at your local business supply store, you can purchase a plastic ID card holder to protect your Medicare card. The card will be safe, and security features will not be compromised.

If you lose your Medicare card, or it gets damaged, you can contact Social Security Administration in any of the following ways to get it replaced.
