I checked on the Medicare.gov site and this the procedure they post for a replacement card:

If your red, white, and blue Original Medicare card has been lost or stolen, or you can no longer use it because it is too faded or damaged, you can replace it by calling the National Social Security Hotline at(###) ###-#### You can also apply for a new card online or go to your local Social Security office.

To get a new card, you will need to provide your

  • name as it appears on your most recent Social Security card;
  • Social Security number; and
  • date of birth.

Note: If you get Medicare health or drug benefits from a Medicare Advantage Plan such as an HMO, PPO, or PDP, you need to call your plan to get your plan card replaced. If you get Medicare through the Railroad Retirement Board, call the Railroad Retirement Board Help Line at(###) ###-####to order a replacement Medicare card.

That part about using the SSA online service is what most people use.

you can ask for a replacement by using your online my Social Security account.

If don’t already have an account, you can create one online. Go to Sign In or Create an Account.

Once you are logged in to your account, select the "Replacement Documents" tab. Then select “Mail my replacement Medicare Card.”

Your Medicare card will arrive in the mail in about 30 days at the address on file with Social Security.

If you can’t or prefer not to use the online service:
