MBI Transition Ends Dec. 31, 2019
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 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:

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


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