Social Security Number Removal Initiative

SSNHere’s some advance information about changes regarding the use of Social Security Numbers.

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) requires us to remove Social Security Numbers (SSNs) from all Medicare cards by April 2019. A new randomly generated Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) will replace the SSN-based Health Insurance Claim Number (HICN) on the new Medicare cards for transactions like billing, eligibility status, and claim status.

You can prepare for this change by visiting the overview and provider web pages, which include information on:

  • Transition period
  • Characteristics of the MBI
  • How to obtain the MBI

It’s time to look at your practice management systems and business processes and determine what changes you need to make to use the new MBI.
