CURRENT NEWS

Medicare Card

Medicare Card

Your Medicare patients will soon be receiving new cards called Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) cards. They are being mailed in different phases by geographic location.

The existing card uses social security numbers and it is known as the Health Insurance Claim Number (HICN). However, the MBI cards are only comprised of eleven numbers and uppercase letters. Each MBI is unique and randomly generated. There is no special meaning to the sequence.

The effective date of each card is the eligibility date for each beneficiary.

There will be a transition period through December 31, 2019 to use the existing or new cards. Effective 1, 2020, only the MBI numbers can be used, regardless of date of service.

  • The MBI’s 2nd, 5th, 8th, and 9th characters will always be a letter.
  • Characters 1, 4, 7, 10, and 11 will always be a number.
  • The 3rd and 6th characters will be a letter or a number.
  • The dashes aren’t used as part of the MBI in computer systems or file formats.’

Beginning in October 2018 and throughout the transition period, the patient MBI will be on every Electronic Remittance Advice (ERA), in the same field as the current HICN.

OUR CLIENTS TELL US

Bill of Health Services helped streamline our billing processes and reduced the stress level in our office dramatically. Whenever we had a question, they were only a phone call away.

Our biggest problem was the errors in our internal operations.  Madelon and her team showed us how to reduce the mistakes and became valued partners in making my practice better. 

Bill of Health Services reviewed our recent EOB denials and found some things we could do to improve our reimbursement rate. Thank you Madelon! That goes right to our bottom line.
