Senior Market Insurance Announcements

Minor Updates to Combined, Companion & Shenandoah Med Supp Apps

May 16, 2018

As you may already be aware, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is readying a fraud prevention initiative that removes Social Security numbers from Medicare cards to help combat identity theft, and safeguard taxpayer dollars. CMS has announced it will begin mailing new cards in April 2018. In preparation for these changes, page 2 of the application now contains an image of the new Medicare Card, and for each applicant, there are now two fields for the Medicare Health Insurance Card Number (this will allow for either or both numbers during the transition period.) *Please note:* In addition to the new Medicare Card update, some states have required changes to the health questions. All applications have been updated and are available on the Agent Portal. Please start using the new applications as soon as possible. If you need supplies ordered please reach out to New Horizons Marketing 888-780-7676, or email Previous versions will no longer be accepted as of June 1, 2018
