Q: How do I look up an MBI in SPOT?
A: Users of SPOT can easily search for and find beneficiaries’ Medicare Beneficiary Identifiers (MBI) using the MBI Lookup.
To find a beneficiary’s MBI in SPOT, follow these steps:
• Select Eligibility in the top navigation menu, then click MBI Lookup
• The MBI Lookup form will appear
• Enter the beneficiary’s first name, last name, Social Security number (SSN), and date of birth. Then, click the “I’m not a robot” box and Search. These elements are required by CMS to obtain an MBI.
• Note: reCAPTCHA verification is required to proceed to the next step. If this verification is not visible, please contact your IT department to adjust your browser settings.
• Note: The HIPAA Eligibility Transaction System (HETS) – the source for all eligibility data in SPOT – requires that SSNs be provided to retrieve an MBI.
• The MBI results will appear. To check a beneficiary’s eligibility, click Check Eligibility to generate an eligibility report.
