Revised Advance Beneficiary Notice Use Now Required

The revised Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN) form is now required as of January 1, 2012.  The ABN form is provided to Medicare beneficiaries by providers such as skilled nursing facilities, physicians and others when the provider believes that Medicare may not cover and reimburse the services to be provided.  This notice of noncoverage is provided to the beneficiary and the revised notice Form CMS-R-131 can be accessed through the attached link with additional information on its use.  http://www.cms.gov/BNI/02_ABN.asp
