Partners & employers

What do the new Medicare cards mean for partners & employers?

We started new Medicare card outreach to and education for people with Medicare in January 2018, before we started mailing the new Medicare cards. The new cards have new Medicare Beneficiary Identifiers (MBIs) instead of Social Security Number (SSN)-based Health Insurance Claim Numbers (HICNs) to help protect the identities of people with Medicare.

Where can partners & employers get more information about the new Medicare cards?
