Per guidelines, Medicare contract will hold any provider who either failed to give notice when required or gave defective notice of financial liability to the beneficiary. The ABN must be completed as required by Medicare with all required blanks duly filled up. Failure to use the ABN correctly may lead to provider liability and loss of revenue.
Are your Advance Beneficiary Notices (ABNs) completed as required? You may be unintentionally leaving blanks that could lead to refunds to Medicare or the patient.
Join expert speaker Melody S. Irvine in this audio session to identify when to issue an ABN; what information is required on the ABN; who can sign the ABN; and most importantly what information to complete if there is a language barrier or denial to sign by the beneficiary. You’ll look at a real ABN and specifically learn what correct information is needed per their guidelines.
