Medicare Info

Welcome to your Atlantic General Hospital Resource for Medicare Information

How much is my Medicare deductible?
For the current deductible amount and other costs, please check the Medicare website.

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.
