New Medicare Card: 67% of Claims Submitted with MBI

Thursday, March 28, 2019

Many providers are using the new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) for Medicare transactions. For the week ending March 1, providers submitted 67% of fee-for-service claims with the MBI. We encourage you to use MBIs now for all Medicare transactions.

3 ways to get the MBI:

  • Ask your patient for their card. If your Medicare patients say they did not get a card, instruct them to call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227), so we can help them get their new cards.
  • Use your Medicare Administrative Contractor’s look up tool. Sign up for the Portal to use the tool.
  • Check the remittance advice. We return the MBI on the remittance advice for every claim with a valid and active Health Insurance Claim Number.
