Can a Linked Chart Review Record use either the HICN or MBI when matching to an encounter (if the encounter uses the other beneficiary identifier)?


Yes, as long as the member is the same member, either the Health Insurance Claim Number (HICN) or the Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) may be reported. For example, if the encounter is submitted with the HICN and the linked Chart Review Record is submitted with the MBI, the linked Chart Review Record will be accepted.
