Medicare has removed social security numbers from their ID cards, and implemented an 11-character alpha numeric Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI). A new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) will replace the SSN-based Health Insurance Claim Number (HICN) on the new Medicare cards for Medicare transactions like billing, eligibility status, and claim status. This means that your entire system of communicating and getting paid by Medicare is about to change.
