CMS Posts Milestones Timeline for its New Medicare Card Project

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has posted a milestones timeline for the New Medicare Cards Project on its website www.cms.gov.

In November, for example, education materials about the new card will be available for providers to order. Also, before April 1, 2018, business and system processes will need to be updated to accept the Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI). Providers who use vendors to maintain their practice management systems will need to work with them to properly update these systems.
