Glad their finally getting around to doing this, but it is going to be a field day (year) for scammers.

From the linked webpage:
Watch out for scams

Scam artists may try to get your current Medicare number and other personal information by contacting you about your new Medicare card. They often claim to be from Medicare and use various scams to get your Medicare Number including:

Asking you to confirm your Medicare or Social Security Number so they can send you a new card.
Telling you there's a charge for your new card and they need to verify your personal information.
Threatening to cancel your health benefits if you don’t share your Medicare Number or other personal information.
If someone calls you and asks for your Medicare number or other personal information, hang up and call us at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227).


Might want to put that number on speed dial.
