CMS Replacing Social Security Numbers With Medicare Beneficiary Identifiers On New Medicare Cards

by Billy Tarpley on May 14, 2018

Excerpt from ADA Daily Huddle 5/14/18:

The ADA News (5/10) reported, “Over the next year, Medicare patients will receive cards with new numbers known as Medicare beneficiary identifiers” and not Social Security numbers. Dentists and other medical professionals are advised by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services “to make sure your system can accept Medicare beneficiary identifiers and to make sure you use the MBI to bill as soon as you get a patient’s new number.”

For more information, visit the CMS website at click on the “Medicare” button at the top of the screen.
