Protect your patients’ identities by using the Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) now. Starting January 1, 2020, you must use the Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI). We will reject claims you submit with the Health Insurance Claim Number (HICN), with a few exceptions, and reject all eligibility transactions.
