The Advanced Beneficiary Notice (ABN)
Medicare requires that an Advanced Beneficiary Notice (ABN) be presented to patients when healthcare providers have reason to believe that a covered service may not be covered. The purpose of the ABN is to advise patients of their financial liability and present them with options.
Medicare does not require that an ABN be administered one the first visit, unless the patient is receiving maintenance care.
Instead, you can administer an ABN voluntarily. See below.
