Kathleen M. King (au)
Proposals have been put forward to replace the current paper Medicare cards, which display beneficiariesäó» Social Security numbers, with electronically readable cards, and to issue electronically readable cards to providers as well.

This report (1) evaluates the different functions and features of electronically readable cards; (2) examines the potential benefits and limitations associated with the use of electronically readable cards in Medicare; (3) examines the steps CMS and Medicare providers would need to take to implement and use electronically readable cards; and (4) describes the lessons learned from the implementation and use of electronically readable cards in other countries. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
