I recently received my medicare card; and to my horror I saw my social security number listed on the card. Social security numbers were removed from drivers licenses years ago. They are no longer used as  student ID numbers. Why on earth are social security numbers listed on medicare cards? Insurance companies do not use SS numbers as ID numbers why does medicare? Seniors generally utilize more medical services more frequently than younger people. As a result, the SS number is  more widely exposed. If a card is lost, the risk for identity theft is increased. Seniors are a vulnerable population who can least afford to deal with identity fraud. Social Security numbers need to be removed from medicare cards. AARP monitors and informs members about various scams. Citizens are regularly warned about identify theft and the need to protect SS numbers. Whatever the process is for getting SS numbers removed from medicare cards, it needs to start; and AARP, as an advocacy organization for retired persons, needs to lead that effort.
