CMS webinar Sept. 18 on new Medicare card

AHA News Now

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Monday will host a webinar for health care providers on the new Medicare beneficiary enrollment cards. Earlier this week, CMS revealed for the first time publicly the newly-designed Medicare card, which contains a unique, randomly-assigned number that replaces the current Social Security-based number. CMS will begin mailing the new cards to people with Medicare benefits in April 2018 to meet the statutory deadline for replacing all existing Medicare cards by April 2019. On the 2 p.m. ET webinar, CMS officials will provide more information and answer questions from health care providers on the transition to the new Medicare card. For more information on the initiative, see the AHA Regulatory Advisory for members.
