    If the account you are using (and changing the ID of) currently has a PS+ membership, you will not need to buy a new membership after changing the ID.

    The membership is tied to the account, and cannot be transferred to another account, and won't be lost when you change ID.

     You may need to restore licences though. 

    PS4 > settings > account management > restore licences
