Medicare Beneficiary Identifier


(MBI): Populating on Documentations

 

Agency administrative staff can enable or disable the MBI feature functionality after entering an approved password to access the "Manage Company Information" tab located under the Admin menu.

 

Enabling the MBI Feature

 

MBI Effective Date

 

The effective date can only be established on or after April 1,2018, which is when CMS announced their capabilities to accept the processing of either MBI or the HICN. All completed documents before the effective date will maintain their original number, and any documentation on or after the effective date will have the new MBI.

 

 

Once the feature is enabled, saving the information will trigger a confirmation to guide you to either “Update Now," which will save the changes and the system will refresh instantly, OR "Update Later," which will save the changes and the system will NOT refresh instantly.

 

  

Disabling the MBI Feature

 

 

MBI in the Patient Chart

 

 

Once the MBI is documented in the patient chart, the system will automatically use the MBI by default for OASIS and billing transactions. The "NA" option has also been added to allow agencies to bypass the default if the patient does not have an MBI, even if the feature is enabled. The MBI field will not allow any special characters (e.g. dashes) and will follow the Medicare MBI format guidelines (a CMS link has been added as an additional resource). The system will automatically change lowercase letters to uppercase for consistency.

 

MBI Documentations

 

When enabled with an effective date, the MBI entered in Patient Form will populate or list in following documents/locations:

 

Note: If viewing a document that was scheduled before the MBI Effective Date, the legacy Medicare HI Number will be shown instead.
