Open Door Forum Re: SSN Removal

Monday, January 2, 2017

On Tuesday, January 3, 2017, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) scheduled a Special Open Door Forum to allow Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) stakeholders the opportunity to learn and ask questions about upcoming changes to the Social Security Number-based Health Insurance Claim Numbers (HICNs). This conference call is a follow-up to the May 2016 informational bulletin regarding Section 501 of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), which requires CMS to remove SSNs from Medicare ID cards by April 16, 2019.

The following areas are impacted by this initiative:

  • Section 111 Reporting
  • Web Portals
  • Outbound correspondence to MSP stakeholders
  • Other data sharing processes with CMS

The details of the Special Open Door forum are as follows:

  • Date: Tuesday, January 17, 2017
  • Time: 3pm to 4pm Eastern
  • Conference Number: 1-800-837-1935
