Topic Medicare: Redaction of Health Insurance Claim Numbers in Medicare Redetermination Notices
Background The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is requesting that all Medicare contractors redact 5 or more values of a beneficiary's health insurance claim number (HICN) with an "X" or an asterisk (*) on Medicare Redetermination Notices (MRNs).
Regulating Body CMS
Compliance Date 1/1/2014
Consequences The practice will need to verify that Medicare Redetermination Notices match accounts.
Next Steps Let billing staff know about this upcoming change so they can implement policies on how MRNs will be matched to patient accounts.​
