Tip of the Month

Avoid Claim Denials: Update Patient Insurance in 2020
New Year Reminder! Please remember that when you are billing Medicare after January 1, 2020 you will be required to use the new Medicare Beneficiary Identifiers (MBI's) instead of the Health Insurance Claim Number (HICN) used in the past. The transition period has ended and all members should have new ID cards. Make sure to have your staff conduct insurance updates on all patients after 1/1/20 to ensure you have the correct information to avoid claim rejections and delays in payment.

If old Medicare ID numbers are used when filing claims after 1/1/20 the rejection codes you are likely to see are A7 and 164 when filing electronically and (CARC) 16 and (RARC) N382 when filing paper claims (Novitas Solutions, 2019). Also, remember that the new MBIs can be found on each remittance advice received when submitting claims with valid HICNs through December 31, 2019.
