Got PR how do I get new medicare card

Hey guys,

I've got my PR a while ago and I'm wondering what you guys had to do to get the permanent Medicare card? I tried to order one online but they just sent out another Interim Card and not the permanent one. How did you guys get it? Do I have to make a trip to the Medicare office, trying to avoid this

Thank you amazing people!

Pretty sure you'll need to make a trip to the Medicare office with your permanent visa in hand. I thought that they automatically sent the permanent card...but apparently there's something wonky with yours.
