Hello,
Are we required to have Medicare patients sign an Advanced Beneficiary Notice of Noncoverage (ABN) even though we weren't participating providers at the time of service??

I believe if you are non par it is not necessary to have the patient sign the ABN, since the patient is paying for the glasses out of pocket, and you are submitting the claim to Medicare for them as a courtesy.

Thanks
