Supposedly one's Social Security number is highly confidential and one is instructed to never carry your SS card. However, one's Medicare number is essentially identical to one's SSN and you are encouraged to always carry it. What is the reasoning behind this?

@gksmith,
Ya got me, gk. Medicare and SS are different bureaucracies and they don't coordinate well.

I ran into this when trying to work with different agencies on hiring as related to possible illegal alients. IRS, SS, and Homeland Security have completely different and conflicting requirements. Live with it.

In my opinion any medicare or health insurance plan Secret number or pin always be confidential. If you lose you card,then immediate inform to your insurance company and stop all services.
