Common Errors Checking Eligibility on the NMP

Some common errors that are made using the HIPAA Eligibility Transaction System (HETS) to check beneficiary eligibility on the Noridian Medicare Portal (NMP) include using a beneficiary nickname (e.g., Liz instead of Elizabeth), typing errors, omitting a required suffix such as Jr or Sr, or the issuance of a new Medicare number. The beneficiary name should be entered exactly as it appears on the beneficiary’s Medicare card. More information is available on the Eligibility Benefits page in the NMP Inquiry Guide.
