2013 New and Revised Medicare Summary Notice (MSN) Messages

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services recently undertook a re-design of the Medicare Summary Notice (MSN) – see CR 7676. It was decided that this was an ideal opportunity to revise many of the outdated, complicated, and obsolete MSN messages currently in use. Complicated, difficult to understand MSN messages were revised to plain language messages that can be easily understood by Medicare beneficiaries; information contained in the MSN messages was updated to reflect current policy; messages no longer applicable have been marked obsolete and the use of these messages will cease. New MSN messages that need to be implemented as soon as possible and new MSN messages that need to be implemented at the same time the new MSN design is implemented are also included in the CR 8106

The Revised MSN Messages Tracker is available at http://www.cms.gov/Regulations-and-Guidance/Guidance/Transmittals/Downloads/R1161OTN.pdf
