I have Medicare, why am I asked to sign an ABN for some services?
You are asked to sign an ABN notice before items or services are furnished
when the provider believes that Medicare probably or certainly will not
pay for some or all of the items or services on the basis of medical reasonableness
and necessity. You can make an informed decision whether or not to receive
the items or services for which you may have to pay out of pocket or through
other insurance. Example: Medicare covers pap tests and pelvic exams once
every 24 months, or once every 12 months for women at high risk, and for
women of child-bearing age who have had an exam that indicated cancer
or other abnormalities in the past 3 years.
