Do you, your facility, your agency or your office have questions about the new Medicare Cards being issued/mailed to beneficiaries? If so, your questions may be a download and a view away.
CMS has posted a Frequently Asked Questions document with questions & answers as of May 2, 2018. This 27-page document features “questions and answers (Q&As) from conferences and information sent to the CMS resource mailboxes”.
The questions & answers fall into these categories:
  • General

I encourage you to share this FAQ with your business office as well as to review it with all individuals that currently manage Medicare billing and those that work with beneficiaries in your setting.
