Unlike the abrupt switch in 2015 from ICD-9 coding to ICD-10, this changeover has a transition period: Both HICNs
and MBIs can be used on all billing and Medicare transactions from now until the end of 2019; after that, only claims with MBIs will be accepted.
There will also be a 21-month transition period where providers will be able to use either the MBI or the HICN
further easing the transition.

for billing purposes.
