Will the updates to the Health Insurance Claim Number (HICN) and social security number (SSN) fields for the 2020 MORs also apply to the 2019 MORs?


Yes, for 2019 final reconciliation, the associated MORs will include updates to replace the HICN field with the Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI), and the SSN field has also been replaced by a filler field. Please refer to the November 6, 2019 HPMS memo, “Updates to Payment Year (PY) 2020 Model Output Reports” for additional details on these updates.
