IV&V Services for the New Medicare Card Project
SLI is providing IV&V services for CMS and the North Dakota Department of Human Services in support of the New Medicare Card implementation effort, (known previously as the Social Security Number Removal Initiative [SSNRI]).
SLI’s scope of service includes:
- Producing exception based New Medicare Card IV&V progress reports that objectively illustrate the strengths and weaknesses of the project and provide recommendations for correcting any identified weaknesses
- Reviewing and analyzing all applicable and available documentation for each deliverable
- Evaluating and making recommendations about the state artifacts that are required for CMS reviews
- Providing guidance and assistance using PM and SDLC checklists and interview guides from our SQM3 toolkit
SLI is providing highly qualified and experienced Medicaid professionals to oversee this project through April 2019, which is the date that the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015 requires Medicare to remove Social Security Numbers from all Medicare cards. A new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI) will replace the SSN-based Health Insurance Claim Number (HICN) on the new Medicare cards.
