CMS finished mailing new Medicare cards. The new cards without Social Security numbers offer better identity protection. Help protect your patient’s personal identity by getting their new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier and using it for Medicare business, including claims submission and eligibility transactions. Give the Get Your New Medicare Card flyer to patients who do not have a new card.
The sooner you update your patients’ Medicare numbers, the better. Plan ahead to avoid delays in payment during the already challenging first quarter of 2020!
A Spanish version of the Get Your New Medicare Card Medicare Learning Network Flyer is available. Give the flyer to patients who do not have a new card.
