ABN liability notice

Posted

Specializes in Geriatrics.

If a resident discharges and goes home after therapy received under Medicare Part A and has skilled days left, should an ABN be given?

Anytime a patient may be held financially responsible (in the future) for something that had been paid for by their Medicare (historically) they should be provided this document properly completed.

Thank you. If a resident chooses to go home and not complete therapy would you issue an ABN?

If a resident has skilled days left and decides to go home before therapy's date would you issue an ABN?

ANYTIME the beneficiary has been receiving care or service which was paid for by Medicare that will no longer be covered an ABN should be provided.
