Medicare Advance Beneficiary Notice 

An ABN (Advance Beneficiary Notice) is a written notice from Medicare outlining procedures that will not be reimbursed due to Medicare’s medical necessity policy and the associated price estimate for these services. As health care stewards, it is physicians’ best practice to educate patients on the medical need for non-covered services. Completed ABN forms will decrease medical necessity denials and write-offs, and will allow INTEGRIS legally to bill patients for certain non-covered charges. ABN forms will fire during order validation, scheduling, pre-registration, and check-in. Completed ABNs will allow INTEGRIS to understand volume of ABNs and if alternative diagnoses are applied (anticipated March 27).
