Medicare Information Technology: Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Needs to Pursue a Solution for Removing Social Security Numbers from Cards
Valerie C. Melvin (au)
The health insurance claims number on Medicare beneficiariesńˇ╗ cards includes the beneficiaryńˇ╗s (or other eligible personńˇ╗s, such as a spouseńˇ╗s) Social Security number (SSN).

(IT )environments can require changes to systems that process and share data.

This report (1) assesses actions CMS has taken to identify and implement IT solutions for removing SSNs from Medicare cards ;and (2) determines whether CMSńˇ╗s ongoing IT modernization initiatives could facilitate SSN removal efforts.
