I got a new card months ago, right after the 1st of the year, so I don't think this is another change. Maybe foreign destinations got served first because they use them less....lol
I had had the old card for 17 years w/o any usage and no part B.

I didn’t get one and they know I’m here. No Part B as well. I won’t haunt Handy Mail looking for it.

No, me either. No Part B here either. I don't even know where my original Part A card is. . .

Same here, and I don't remember, either. SS has my home address and mails the "are you alive" form here every year, including this one.

They think I live at Handy Mail. I would never get anything if mailed to my house.

The card I received is blue at the top saying Medicare Health Insurance, then white with name, number and Part A Benefits Only, then red at the bottom (and here is where the difference may be) stating Railroad Retirement Board as that is where most of my pension comes from, not Social Security as that is the smaller of my government pensions.  RR Retirement doesn't exist anymore but if you worked for them far enough back you were grandfathered in forever for their pension program which is now part of SS, but handled separately because it was a higher paying pension.
All Medicare benefits apply to RR Retirement.
