The new card will remove the gender identification, your signature, and your Social Security Number changes to a Member Beneficiary Identifier. The details can be found at www.Medicare.gov/newcard
Starting in June, Nebraska will start receiving their new cards. Your new card is active as soon as you get it.
Please SHRED your old card!
This is from the Medicare blog
“Medicare has started sending new cards with new Medicare Numbers to people with Medicare. Your new Medicare card will include a new number unique to you, instead of your current Social Security-based number. This will help to protect you against fraud.
Starting this month, people who are enrolling in Medicare for the first time will be among the first in the country to get the new cards. If you have Medicare already, you’ll get your new card over the coming months. Medicare will mail cards on a rolling basis, sending a new card with a new number at no cost to everyone with Medicare over the next year. To update your official mailing address, visit your MySocialSecurity account, or call 1-800-772-1213.
If you want to know when new cards start mailing to your area, visit www.Medicare.gov/NewCard, and sign up to get email alerts from Medicare. We’ll send you an email when cards start mailing in your state, and we’ll also email you about other important Medicare topics. While the cards have a new look, your Medicare coverage and benefits will stay the same. “
I thought that I would list the results of using Bluetooth to connect to speakers.
I have 3 Bluetooth devices: and Insignia Stereo Speaker, Echo, and Trekz Titanium bone-conducting headphones.
After pairing the Insignia works, but the speakers are just fair. The Echo has much better sound and pairs well after giving Alexa instruction to pair. The Trekz is great with the day long live and clear sound. It’s like the sound from an old stereo.
Yesterday, I hooked up the Echo to the Mercat. After playing for about a half hour the sound became scratchy. This also happens with the Insignia, often it is scratchy from the start. But it has never (fingers crossed) happened with the Trekz.
So I am wondering, do the processors get overworked? It never happens when the Echo plays my Amazon music. I would think that the audio signal is not being decoded when the distortion could occur.
So I am asking the group for explanations of this phenomena.
