Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI)

The MACRA Act of 2015, mandates Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to remove Social Security Numbers (SSN) from all Medicare cards to address the risk of Medicare beneficiary medical identity theft. CMS will mail out new Medicare Cards to Medicare Beneficiaries starting April 2018 through April 2019.
