MBI Transition Ends This Month: Will You Be Paid On January 1?

The 21 month transition period will end on December 31; use Medicare Beneficiary identifiers (MBIs) now.

  • You are currently submitting 86% of claims with MBIs.
  • Get MBIs from your patients and through the MAC portals (sign up (PDF)) now and after the transition period. You can also find the MBI on the remittance advice.
  • Protect your patients from identity theft - use MBIs.

Starting January 1, if you do not use the MBI (regardless of the date of service) for Medicare transactions

  • We will reject your claims with a few exceptions
  • We will reject all eligibility transactions

See the MLN Matters Article (PDF) for more information on getting and using MBIs.
