New Medicare Card Webinar Anti-Fraud Message

In early April, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) began mailing new Medicare cards to people with Medicare. CMS is removing Social Security Numbers from Medicare cards to prevent fraud, fight identity theft, and keep taxpayer dollars safe.
 
In recognition of the vital role that our law enforcement, the Senior Medicare Patrol, and other anti-fraud partners play in protecting the identities of our seniors and others with Medicare, CMS is reaching out to you with an opportunity to attend a webinar and learn more about the new Medicare cards. This information will be presented twice, on Monday, June 14 and Thursday, June 26
 
During the webinar, they will cover the background and implementation of the New Medicare Card Project, including the new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) number and format, their mailing strategy, the MBI transition period, and their anti-fraud message. They are also interested in hearing any questions, comments or strategies you are using to help people with Medicare keep their identities protected as we transition to the new MBI number. 
 
The webinar will last 30 minutes and includes time for questions and comments. Although not necessary to attend these sessions, an RSVP to: gregg.mcallister@cms.hhs.gov is appreciated. Please feel free to share this invitation with other law enforcement and fraud prevention partners that you think may benefit from this information.
