Initially, CMS intended on mailing the Medicare cards with MBIs in April, which included new Medicare customers in all regions and existing Medicare customers within the Mid-Atlantic/PA region. However, CMS has pushed back the roll-out to existing customers until May; new customers will still receive MBIs in April.

 Below is the updated schedule. Please note that it is subject to change per CMS.
