When is the updated Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN) Form mandatory for use?
The Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN) Form has been updated with an expiration date in 2026 and will be mandatory for use beginning June 30, 2023.
An ABN, also known as a waiver of liability, is a notice you give your patients before they receive a service if you have reason to believe Medicare will not pay for your service.
So, the ABN is a way of listing the chiropractic services provided and what is not covered, so your patients are fully aware of what their out-of-pocket costs will be.
Since chiropractic coverage for Medicare is limited to spinal manipulation, it is important to make your patients aware of everything else you do (exams, therapy, etc.) is going to be an out-of-pocket expense.
