Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) Look-up Tool: Palmetto GBA's new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) tool is now available in eServices for providers to obtain patients' MBI numbers. The MBI Look-up tool will only return an MBI if the new Medicare card has been mailed to avoid potential confusion if the MBI is used before the beneficiary receives their new Medicare card. For more information, please read this article.

Medicare is removing Social Security Numbers from Medicare cards. New cards with a number unique to each patient will replace the old cards, which will be mailed between April 2018 and April 2019. This change will help protect the patient’s identity. #NewCardNewNumber
