CMS: Launch of the New CMS Beneficiary Notices Initiative (BNI) Mailbox Portal for Beneficiary Notices and Related Policy Questions

Lisa Volk and Jackie Pappalardi in Clinical & Quality

This message is to announce the launch of the new CMS Beneficiary Notices Initiative (BNI) mailbox portal for beneficiary notices and related policy questions. Please note this mailbox portal replaces the BNI mailbox, BNImailbox@cms.hhs.gov. The purpose of this new BNI mailbox portal is to provide a more efficient method for responding to provider, industry, and stakeholder questions. 

The new BNI mailbox portal provides links to a variety of resources and links to other CMS mailboxes and e-mail addresses. CMS encourages you to review the available resources before submitting a question to ensure that we have not already provided information on the specific topic in question. Providers, industry, and other stakeholders may submit questions to the BNI mailbox portal effective immediately. 

Please access the new BNI mailbox via the following link:  https://appeals.lmi.org.
