New Medicare Cards

Submitted By |

REMINDER:  New Medicare cards are being mailed to all Medicare beneficiaries.   This project should be completed by April 2019.    A new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) will replace the SSN-based Health Insurance Claim Number (HICN).  The MBI will be 11 characters in length, made  up only of number and uppercase letters (no special characters).  If you use lowercase letters, the CMS system will convert them to uppercase letters.

The MBI will not be using the following letters:  S, L, O, I, B and Z to avoid confusion between some letters and numbers.  Each MBI is unique and randomly generated.

Why are the new cards important?  To help fight medical identity.

Be sure to ask your patients if they have received their new card and update the patient information in your practice management systems.
