A Message from the Owners

Screen Shot 2017 05 15 at 10.15.27 AM

Imagine you are driving down a windy, hilly road and you start seeing signs warning you that the road is out ahead. Maybe the rst sign reads “Road ends in 2 miles.” The second sign might say “Road ends in 1 mile.” As you get closer, the signs start telling you how many feet until the road ends. At what point do you stop, turn around, and go a different direction?

Medicare Card Change

Medicare Card

 

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015 requires the removal of Social Security numbers (SSNs) from all Medicare cards by April 2019. A new randomly generated Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) or Medicare number will replace the SSN-based Health Insurance Claim Number (HICN) on new Medicare cards.

Each person enrolled in Medicare will be assigned a new Medicare card. the new number will be clearly different than your current Medicare number – it will be 11 characters in length and will be made up only of numbers and uppercase letters. The new number is confidential like the SSN and should be protected.

The new number will not change your Medicare benefits. You may start using the new Medicare cards and numbers as soon as you get them. Please inform our office of your new card number so that we can update your records.
