No MBI = No Payment
As of January 1, 2020, all Medicare home health and hospice claims must include new Medicare Beneficiary Identifiers (MBI), regardless of the date of service. Claims without MBIs will be rejected. In a recent Provider Outreach and Education call for hospices, NGS reported that about 30% of New England agencies were still submitting claims without MBIs. This is higher than the national average. Don’t have your claims rejected! Find out more in CMS’s special MLN Matters the new identifiers.
