CMS to address new Medicare cards on 2/21 webinar

The American Medical Association is encouraging physicians and applicable practice staff to register for a webinar that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will hold from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, February 21 to address the new Medicare cards that will be issued beginning in April. The new cards will not display the beneficiary’s Social Security number to reduce the risk of having their identity stolen. AMA says that “physician offices must be prepared to accept the new Medicare identification number [beginning in April].” The webinar will include a Q & A, and it will be recorded.
