Is your facility using the proper ABN form? The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently updated the Advanced Beneficiary Notice of Noncoverage (ABN), Form CMS-R-131.
The new ABN will be mandatory for use on 1/1/2021, but the new form can be implemented now.
MDS Consultants Tip: The updated ABN form will read “Form CMS-R-131 (Exp. 06/30/2023)” in the bottom left of the form.
