Implementation of New Medicare Numbers
Presentation on the New Medicare Card (December 2017)

  • The Health Insurance Claim Number (HICN) is a Medicare beneficiary’s identification number, used for processing claims and for determining eligibility for services across multiple entities (e.g., Social Security Administration (SSA), Railroad Retirement Board (RRB), States, Medicare providers, and health plans)
  • The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015 mandates the removal of the Social Security Number (SSN)-based HICN from Medicare cards to address current risk of beneficiary medical identity theft
  • The legislation requires that CMS mail out new Medicare cards with a new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) by April  2019
