Experian Health is aware of the upcoming regulatory changes to the ABN revision date in June. Our Clinical Services team has the updated template and clients that use our integrated ABN products will be updated in advance of this date.
**6/8/2017 Update – Currently, the ABN revision has already been released to both the eCareNext Medical Necessity and OrderChecker ASP platforms. The new ABN revision is on schedule to be released to OrderManager – Medical Necessity in the very near future.
The changes are no change to the form itself, there is a new expiration date, and per CMS “ with the 2016 PRA submission, a non-substantive change has been made to the ABN. In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504), the form has been revised to include language informing beneficiaries of their rights to CMS nondiscrimination practices and how to request the ABN in an alternative format if needed. The effective date for use of this ABN form is 6/21/2017.”
