Did You Know? When to Use a New ABN

When a Medicare patient moves from active treatment to maintenance care, you must get a new ABN formed signed. If that same patient re-injures themselves or has a new injury, a new active care phase of treatment would begin. At this time, you would acquire a new ABN and you must do an updated evaluation to determine how you would manage the condition. Your documentation will support the new diagnosis with a new start date for treatments.
