Long story but..my dad's Medicare card was lost during a visit to the VA with my husband. We did all the maneuvers to find it to no avail, so I need to request a replacement. Dad has vascular dementia & lives in MC. However, the website is clear, in no uncertain terms, that you cannot request a replacement card for someone else, EVEN if you have their permission! I haven't called Social Security/Medicare yet to discuss the issue because I wondered if anyone had been through this & what tips I should know.
