CMS recently announced the mailing of new Medicare cards to beneficiaries in Wave 3 states, including Kansas. To ensure no disruption in services to beneficiaries, providers and supplies can use either the former Social Security number-based HICN or the new alpha-numeric Medicare Beneficiary Identifier for all Medicare transactions through the transition period ending December 31, 2019. Information about how your staff can get the new numbers once they’ve been mailed can be found here. Additional information about this initiative can be found by visiting the CMS website.
