What is an Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN)?

An ABN is a written noticethat you may receive from physicians, providers, or suppliers, before they furnish a service or item to you, notifying you:

  • That Medicare will probably deny payment for that specific service or item in your case.
  • The reason the physician, provider, or supplier expects Medicare to deny payment.
  • That you will be personally and fully responsible for payment if Medicare denies payment.

An ABN also gives you the opportunity to refuse to receive the service or item.
