MBI Reason Codes on Remittance Advice
As beneficiaries begin receiving their new Medicare cards, practices are seeing a new code, “N793” on their remittance advice. This new code will not impact payment and is informational only. N793 indicates that the patient now has been provided a new identifier. However, you can continue using the patients’ SSNs during the transition period. Remember CMS began mailing beneficiaries their cards in April and will be staggering their delivery throughout 2018. Be sure your system is ready and able to take the new identifier.
