Q) MY MEDICAID WAS STOLEN WITH MY WALLET.
A) I’m sorry to hear that your Medicaid card was stolen. Here are some steps you can take to report it and get a replacement card:
- Report the theft to your local police department. They will be able to file a report and help you track down the thief.
- Call your state’s Medicaid office. They will be able to cancel your old card and issue you a new one.
- Get a copy of your police report. You will need this to prove that your card was stolen if you need to see a doctor before you receive your new card.
- Keep a close eye on your credit report. If someone tries to use your stolen information to open up new accounts, you will be able to catch it early and take steps to protect yourself.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
