The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015, requires the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services to remove Social Security Numbers (SSNs) from all Medicare cards by April 2019. A new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) will replace the SSN-based Health Insurance Claim Number (HICN) on new Medicare cards for Medicare transactions like billing, eligibility status, and claim status. A new field of Alternate Medicare Number was added for both the employee and the employee’s dependents. This is a free format field of up to 15 characters or numbers.
