MBI on Remittance Advice
For Remittance Advices generated after October 1, 2019 and through December 31, 2019 (end of the transition period), CMS will return both the new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) and Health Insurance Claim Number (HICN) when claims are submitted with a valid and active HICN. The MBI will be reported in the same place providers/suppliers get the "changed HICN" today. Providers can also get the MBI by asking their patients for his/her new Medicare card or by using the MBI look up tool within the Noridian Medicare Portal (NMP). Register Now to gain access.
To ensure Medicare patients continue to get care, use the HICN or MBI for all Medicare transactions through December 31, 2019.
