CMS will provide an update on the New Medicare Card Project. The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015 mandates the removal of the Social Security Number (SSN)-based HICN from Medicare cards to address current risk of beneficiary medical identity theft. A new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) will replace the SSN-based HICN on new Medicare cards which will be mailed to 60 million beneficiaries. This presentation will provide an update to the implementation and what stakeholders need to do to get ready.
Explain the New Medicare Project to affected stakeholders
Describe changes that will need to be made by stakeholders as a result of this change
Identify questions or concerns that may arise as a result of the legislative effort
