CMS reports that as of June 14, practices have submitted 75% of Medicare fee-for-service claims with the new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI). Practices are urged to remind Medicare patients to present their new card and to collect MBIs at the time of service. As a reminder, starting Jan. 1, 2020, Medicare will only accept the MBI on claims. MBIs are accessible via your Medicare Administrative Contractor web portal.
Download the MGMA member-benefit New Medicare Card Toolkit for additional information on this transition to MBIs and downloadable posters you can post in your practice to educate your patients on the new card.
