Baltimore, MD - CMS has scheduled an open door forum for June 8 on the agency's Social Security Number Removal Initiative. The agency is asking that practice representatives attend to learn how the new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBIs) will affect practice billing, determining eligibility status, and claim status.

If you are unable to attend the June 8 forum, additional forums will be scheduled.
