The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid require a provider to notify Medicare beneficiaries when a service may not be covered under the Medicare program. The Advance Beneficiary Notice of Non-coverage (ABN) must be completed by the provider, or his/her representative, and signed by the patient, before a service is rendered.
